    I have slab pine countertops with the de-barked edge. Looks like they used polyurethane; I used multiple coats of Waterlox. I had to search for someone who mills the wood, and the carpenters had a hard time with it. Mine are not as dramatic but I love them.

    Nice counter top, I would have used natural stones not bricks as well as a concrete sink instead of the repurposed sink.

    i had one done fro me in my cabin, from trees from my land. I used fir, since i was told it is tough and dense wood. I learned that it is best to use wood that has been kiln dried, or dry and stabilised for many years at least! Even a thick slab changes when brought in to an interior environ. It can warp, shrink, expand, and sometimes even ooze sap. So, make sure if you mill your own wood to also get it dried properly. Then there was a lot of sanding, which is easy but took some time. Then we installed, with hidden nails/screws where needed( minimal) I sealed mine in several coats of tung oil, because i wanted a natural look, food safe. You put a coat on, let it dry, lightly sand, then do another, repeat many times for a real sealant. I think we might have done 7 or 8 coats in the end. It works great, as long as i dont leave something like a beet on it overnight, it doesnt stain. ( havent tried that, hope i dont ever try it, lol !) Plus, if i got a stain or mark i didnt like, , i could likely sand it out, and refinish with more tung oil, pretty easy. I love the look, and it fits beautifully into my woodsy cabin. I recommend people give it try!
