We have recently been redoing our kitchen and here are pictures of the walnut top I made for the island in our kitchen.

I used Zinnser sealcoat to fill the grain and Waterlox Original Sealcoat for the finish.

Nice work. The color of the base cabinet is perfect with the walnut too.

Thats a really gorgeous island and great job on the finishing of the top.

RoninOhio – I purchased the walnut from an individual in the Milford area. I found him on craigslist.

Mike the walnut countertop looks great! I like the contrast in the painted cabinet colors as well.

That countertop is NICE! Love the grain patterns.

I so wish my wife liked glossy surfaces. I’m doomed to only have satin finishes.
