What would be best finish for a walnut countertop it is not by the sink thank goodness. I am thinking Polyurethane
Depends on how the customer wants to use it. They may want an option for repair to daily use, then poly is out.
So you suggesting oil which would be best and food safe??
The story apparently is that all finishes are food safe once cured.
The two basic camps are:
Food prep? If yes, then an oil finish is considered best to avoid finish chips peeling from the top and getting into food.
Appearance? Then a barrier coat may be best. No cutting on the surface.
Chemcrafts Verde 2k poly is good and itís not a thick build, resembles an oil finish. Mohawk makes a thicker poly that is brush or roll on that lays down good, itís a heavier shiny build.
Shooting a 103 x 37 Paduak counter top today with Mohawk 2k poly. The 2k's are great products and very durable. As stated, Mohawk claims to be wipe or brush. We have only shot ours. Just finished a large dinning table with 2k matte on walnut. Looks great.
we just delivered one, 2" reclaimed walnut, 4 sirca clear 10 sheen . The last coat with their hardening additive. Smooth as glass and looks like there's nothing on it
