Waterlox for butcher block w/ sink?

Long story short, remolding my kitchen and installing an island with a butcher block. I'm installing a sink(big one) and wondering what I should use on the wood to seal it. I bought waterlox original and plan on staining it first but wondering if I should use something else? The sink is an undermount and I plan on having the wood lip extend over the sink if that makes sense.

I know this isn't a huge help but waterlox is what I am using on approximately 20 lft. of kitchen counter tops I made from oak. Also using it for vanity tops. I did some research which led me to it's use It. I say not much help because we haven't moved into the house yet. I did four coats sandingwith 320 in between and it turned out beautiful. Hopefully they stay that way.

I think for ultimate protection bar top epoxy is generally suggested in wet areas.

Good luck with your project.

According to their website it's good for wood countertops, there's also a pic of products used in a wood bowl sink. I use it on some of my builds but it does require multi coats and 24 hrs drying between each. I use it on spalted woods and it does take extra for the softer wood.
