Firstly you want a very stable wood which is why teak is a good choice. A penetrating epoxy like WEST will make for a dueable finish.

I couldn’t(wouldn’t?) afford teak and didn’t feel like the sticky stuff. My double sink is made from selected old growth tightly grained quartersawn PINE! I oiled the hell out of it with boiled linseed oil. It must be soaked right through! The whole thing is experimental but so far it is doing well. I used a waterproof polyurethane glue for the laminations, it was built in layers to get large rounded corners. Resorcinol glue would be excellent as well, didn’t have any at the time.
