suggestions for refinishing a bar top - 1 reply

Friends of my wife and I own a wine bar that just celebrated its 1 year anniversary. While there we noticed that the finish on the bar was wearing off in several spots.

End grain butcher block split - any thoughts? - 4 replies

I built an end grain butcher block in the wood whisperer style. I used padauk and maple and finished it with several coats of salad bowl finish (cut 50/50 salad bowl finish and mineral spirits). I let it sit for 4 days and then coated it with a beeswax/paraffin rub. My wife used it today to cut some veggies, then pulled a pan off the stove and u...
