There are many kitchen countertops that are made out of wood. Unless you are planning on pouring water on the top and letting it sit there, the maple will hold up just fine. I’ll recommend a wipe-on polyurethane as a finish – cheap, easy and fairly tough. Also somewhat water resistant.

I’m a bit jealous. I just finished installing a.bunch of cabinets in my shop and had to settle for custom laminate tops. Maple tops were my preferred choice but at least twice as much money.
