Well after getting a little bit of work done on the project between work and fishing I finally got it all finished. Looks pretty good with the new back splash. Wife likes it…whew.

I’ll have this in my dream kitchen. Did you use biscuits/dowels/dominos for the edge joints?

Looks nice -What did you end up using for the finish? Durability must be a concern

I really like that. It is so much nicer than granite counter tops. The contrast with cabinet fronts is very pleasing.

Finished with Tung oil(many, many, many applications) and then a beeswax/tung oil finish. This way durability is not an issue, if you damage….just have to sand out the problem and refinish

As for the cabinets, built them out of knotty pine. Made river stone drawer pulls( actually bought a rock tumbler) crafty eh.

Have your say...
