Barnwood Countertops

I made these countertops almost a year ago and part of a kitchen remodel. This started out as a simple fix of one small section around the sink and ended up with all new appliances, sink and a rearranged kitchen.
These were about 2 inch thick and really rough. I had a lot of time in getting them all sized to the same thickness. There was a lot of time in gluing and hand sanding.

I have more photos posted on my facebook page.

Nice looking counter. I love the look of barnwood. What did you finish it with?

I used a Minwax Helmsman spar urethane although now I think that I would use products from Waterlox. They have a sealer finish that I would use for 3 or four coats then a satin finish for a couple of more.
I have used the Waterlox on several projects since the countertop and really like it.

I do a lot of wood counter top work usually with pine. The bar wood is absolutely beautiful .

Looks fantastic and like a LOT of hard work. Turned out beautiful. Something I’ve thought of doing down the road but I can imagine its pretty time consuming.
