All I can say is….. WHEW! .... this suckah is heavy. :) 8 feet long and 41 inches wide. Not quite inch and a quarter thick. Finish is Waterlox Original (thank you, Bruce!) 4 good coats. I still have a lot of trim work to do and doors for the cabinets have to be made, but we’re starting to have a useful kitchen back again.

A different angle…

The gloss will diminish on the Waterlox over the next month or 2 (or 3). I have a smaller top made from the same walnut, and also done in Waterlox original and the gloss is about half of what this new top has. I made that other top about 8 weeks ago.

Wow! Your new tool really did motivate you! And I see that your mate is a keeper because she uses cooking tools that look like what you’d use in the shop! She even displays them on the windowsill! That is one lovely kitchen, warm inviting and just neat.

That is very sweet. Wood can really warm up a kitchen.
