We have two finish options for our wood countertops and the choice mostly revolves around how you want to use your wood surface.
Food safe mineral oil – our food safe mineral oil finish is the only real option if you plan on cutting directly on your countertop. This finish is absorbed into the wood and provides limited stain and water protection. It requires a refresher coat of oil that must be performed to maintain the integrity of the top. Refresher coats will vary by use and location but will typically need to be performed every one to two months. Application is as easy as wipe on, wipe off.
Permanent Finish – available in dull, satin (standard), and semi-gloss – This partial-grain fill top coat is recommended on countertops that aren’t going to be used to cut on. It is safe for indirect food contact (kneading dough, etc.), is completely waterproof, and provides excellent protection from stains and household chemicals. This finish is also completely free from formaldehyde and is GREENGUARD interior air quality certified.
Staining – stock stains and custom staining is available. We can match any stain or color.
