I would recommend Waterlox. I fought tooth and nail to put this on our countertops but went the Howard oil/wax route instead. Such a PITA. Upkeep is annoying and definitely doesn’t help on the sink side. I’m in the process of drying this out so I can sand it back down to apply the Waterlox on the sink counter.

The labor involved for the initial Waterlox application is well worth the next to none maintenance on the back end. Plus it doesn’t alter the color of the wood as greatly, is low gloss and seals the surface while remaining foodsafe

(i can’t take credit for making these, all credit goes to my father-in-law) This was White Oak that fell on his farm during Hurricane Katrina – has a bunch of worm tunnels, looks incredible
