My Kitchen Remodel DIY Butcher Block Countertops


I've been really busy on my kitchen remodel but I'm almost finished. Here are some pictures of my new butcher block cabinets with a thick poly finish. The cost for custom was outrageous so I made my own for a fraction of the cost! So shiny, so easy to care for, and so pretty.

    How has it stood up and what did you do around the sink? Brilliant! Cornelia

    Hi Peggy - how has it stood up since you did the original install?

      Hi Cornelia, It has held up surprisingly well with only a few scratches here and there. I've been very pleased. Oh, I just used a clear caulk around the sink.
