Hahahaha... yes I will need some new tools.
Well, I picked up the countertops from IKEA last night, and the good
news is they come raw (or at least they appear to be). This means I
can go ahead and test out my Hardwax Oil. I'm putting a kitchen sink
in them..... and yes, I know I'm breaking a countertop cardinal rule
by doing this, but I couldn't resist the displays they had setup at
IKEA. They must have shown 3-4 kitchen models where the kitchen sinks
were in butcher block.
Getting back on track... this is why I want to use this Hardwax Oil.
I know the area around the sink is going to get wet and I want the
best moisture protection without a poly plastic wrap.
The Hardwax Oil doesn't come in for a couple of days, so if you guys
have any other suggestions feel free to voice them.
To reitereate.... I know dropping a sink into butcher block doesn't
make me the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I can't resist it. I'll
post my results here in a year or two to let everyone know how it
worked out for me.
Thanks for the suggestions and advice.
