So many people as the owners of the house are asking the same old question about how to finish wood countertops in kitchen and yes, it is kind of a shame to know that so many people are having the same and old problem. Yet, it can be a main and common reason to explain why it is such a good idea for you to stay with me here a bit while as I am going to show you how to finish wood countertops in kitchen.
Let’s start by defining the use of the countertop, whether it is going to be food preparation or not. Since you are going to use it for the food preparation, it is vital and important for you to get a mineral oil that is known as one common food-safe oil used to treat wood countertops. However, it is vital for you to also know that it only offers limited protection from water. It can be such a good idea for you to opt for the Tung oil that becomes more and more popular these days, given the fact that it is another treatment pick that comes with greater water resistance. Of course, you could also opt for the Polyurethane or the similar coatings that are intended to be a permanent finish as they do not require reapplication and are not intended for food preparation areas. Then, you should also continue the process by sanding the wood countertop with a random orbiting sander. For instance, you can easily use a 120-grit fine kind of sandpaper in order to remove any glue squeeze out during the installation, so that you will be able to clean off the countertop of any sawdust and wipe down with a tack rag at the same time, my dear guys!
Once there, you can apply the oil followed by brushing the polyurethane or even the similar coatings per the labels direction. Make sure you apply several coats to build up the surface.
