We have a large kitchen island with a walnut top. When I built it we decided on “Tried and True” varnish oil and after five years it still looks perfect. It is food safe and develops a beautiful glow over time. We re-coat about once a year. It does take a bit of time to cure but not as much as tung oil. Our stove top sits right into the walnut and we have had no problems. I would whole heartedly recommend it. The only place I know of that carries it is Lee Valley. Check it out on their online catalogue.
