Just How Well Do DIY Counter Tops Hold Up?

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
I get asked this question a lot. People like the idea of an inexpensive solution for new counter tops....but it's also kind of scary to venture outside the realm of regular store bought ones. Ten months after installing our wood counter tops I'm revisiting just how well they've held up for me.

    @Abby Feistel just wondering if there was a particular type of wood you used, such as oak or yellow pine? I was thinking of pour my own concrete counters in a country kitchen but this is beautiful as well!

    Thanks for the update. You're absolutely right that worry over durability is an inhibiting force... it's certainly one of the things holding me back for trying a DIY counter. So thank you!

    These are beautiful.... will the poly withstand heat from pots and pans, grease spatters, etc.? I have large counters on both sides of my stove and like to be able to use them without having to worry.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
