Looking for a little advice here. Fellow LJ member, ( bruc101) posted a great looking countertop, since I am remodeling the kitchen, I asked him some advice on the wood countertop. Now I would like to get some opinions on what wood I should use and what would hold up the best, including any finishing tips. I have done epoxy bar tops bur for my kitchen I dont want to go that route. I know bruc101 used cypress but I would like to see what else you guys think would be good so 2 questions:
1) what good strong hardwood do you recommend for my kitchen countertops?
2) what is the way you would finish it knowing this will be used every day? Not quite as much as a diner kitchen but still some serious usage.
