When we did a complete re-build of our house in Canada in 2004 / 5, I built this kitchen island. The top is walnut with Tried & True varnish oil. We used it because it is a food grade (no toxins) finish and we use the top for food preparation. My wife loves it. The finish gets deeper and glows a little more with each annual re-coat. The downside is that after the re-coat it takes about three days to a week to fully dry. The upside is that all the year’s marks and scratches go away.
