    how long do you think that counter top will last? specially around the sink area

  3. I installed some butcher block with my granite counters; hard rock maple. I sanded with 50 grit just one pass, then tack clothed; then one pass of 120 grit, then tack clothed, then applied a wood conditioner. Then sanded with 220 and tack clothed. Then stained the wood. Then applied 3 coats of tung oil. The counters have been water and stain resistant. I waited a day between the wood conditioner and the stain and another day between stain and first coat of tung oil and then a day between each extra coat of tung oil. You MUST stay clear of the counters in between. The counters are smooth as silk and beautiful. I absolutely love them.

  4. When will the layoffs stop?

  5. I was surprised to hear him say to bring the edge to the inside edge of the sink; Really? Anyone else?

  6. Shocking on how awesome this is…⚖️

    I like and appreciate Lowe’s for posting this video. I recently went to my local Lowe’s to try and have their contractor do my kitchen in butcher block counter tops. I asked the contractor what is your procedure for sealing the wood. They use a polyurethane, this is not good in many ways. The proper sealing for a kitchen butcher block should be done as instructed in this video using several coats of a tung oil preferably Waterlox.

  10. What brand of sealant did you use on this project?
