There are so many design choices with wood countertops to explore such as wood species, stains and finishes, edges, and grains. We recommend choosing a durable hardwood such as maple or oak at a thickness of at least 1.5 inches, and up to 3 inches, for your wood countertop. While you’re at Schutte Lumber, remember to pick up Penofin penetrating oil wood finish, which is formulated to enhance and protect the natural beauty of any variety of wood. We recommend Penofin Verde for an eco-friendly finish.

Once you  have chosen the look you want, gather your materials, and get started on your woodworking project using these step-by-step instructions. Check out more of our woodworking projects.

One response to “Build Your Own Sustainable Wood Countertop”

  1. I was looking into having our kitchen countertop replaced with wood to fit our lodge aesthetic quite better. Your advice to try using a hardwood such as a maple or oak at a thickness of 1.5 inches or more is perfect. That is something I would be sure to keep in mind while searching for potential contractors later. I’m not really good with DIY after all. Thanks!
