Kitchen Counters

Here are some photos of countertops I made for my parents this summer. There are about 17' of them total. I had just finished grad school and was still looking for work, so I had a little extra time. I did the tile backsplash too (as well as the floor, which you don't have a good view off). Anyway, this would be largest project yet, at least in terms of time and amount of material, if not in complexity. My sister in law has already made me promise that I will make one for her some day.










Oh, and I almost forgot, the latested trend in baseboard trim:

Very interesting. I'm curious as to what kind of finish you used?

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

I used tung oil as the finish. About 7 coats on the top and around the sink.

I have to say that finishing is one of the areas where I feel the most inept.

Awesome tops,tung oil is great I use it quite a bit . It is hard to screw up with it.
I am spending a little more time on the finishing end as usually I have a prof. do it.
