waterlox finish on this 4" thick walnut countertop
Almost all of my tables are finished with multiple coats of a tung oil / linseed oil mix. This is only my second kitchen counter top - the first was for my kitchen several years ago. I finished (the top) with Waterlox tung oil finish for added durability in the kitchen setting. It has worked out nicely, with no maintenance thru the years. So, we are doing the same here with this 4" thick solid walnut countertop. Just like before we are applying 2 coats of Waterlox Original first, then two coats of their matte finish to tone all the gloss down a bit.
