Wood Countertop and Cutting Board Finishes…


There are several finishes available for your countertop. Each option provides a waterproof, stain resistant surface. All finish options provide a beautiful countertop with elegant style and rugged durability.


  • Mineral Oil – light protection, food safe, re-oil every week, easy to maintain and repair surface. Ideal for Cutting Boards
  • Tung Oil – good protection, food safe, re-oil weekly for the first month then once every 3 months as needed, easy to maintain and      repair surface.
  • Lacquer – very good protection, cannot be used as a cutting surface, maintenance free, difficult to repair surface.
  • Waterlox – excellent protection, cannot be used as a cutting surface, deep coverage because of its Tung Oil properties in addition      to a solid surface like Lacquer and comes in different sheen, maintenance free, difficult to repair surface.
  • Stain added – a stain color can be added to most of our countertops and must be covered in either Lacquer or Waterlox, cannot be    used as a cutting surface, difficult to repair surface.
  • Distressed – this is a cosmetic feature that can be added to any finish.
