Mineral Oil Finish

We apply two coats of a food-grade mineral oil on the top surface and all four sides of our wood countertops. The wood countertops are sanded between each coat of mineral oil. Follow up maintenance coats need to be reapplied periodically to re-seal the wood countertop. The bottom side of our wood countertops are sealed with an acrylic urethane sealer (to eliminate the need for re-sealing the bottom side).

We do not offer staining for countertops finished with mineral oil.

Tread Coat

We apply 3 coats of a two-component, commercial grade conversion varnish tread coat containing aluminum oxide to give it a hard and durable finish. The prefinished stair treads end up looking great with a clear, natural finish that is hard to beat! On the stained wood stair treads and risers, a stain is applied, then 3 coats of tread coat.

Acrylic Urethane Finish

We apply three coats of a two-component acrylic urethane developed from advanced European resin technology. This gives the wood countertops a hard and durable finish for superior resistance to abrasion, water, staining, household chemicals and body oils. The acrylic urethane used on our wood countertops contains UV absorbers and is formaldehyde free. The prefinished wood countertops end up looking great with a clear, natural finish that is hard to beat! On the stained wood countertops, a stain is applied, then 3 coats of acrylic urethane.

Stain Disclaimer

Light stains will not change the color on dark wood species such as Walnut, Sapele, Mahogany and Brazilian Cherry. Because of the artistic nature of applying stain and the natural variation of wood grain and color there may be a slight variation in color and darkness between stain samples and finished product.

Actual stain colors may vary from what your PC monitor or mobile device displays.
