I intend to resurface our kitchen butcher block counter.
Since we don't tend to use it for direct food preparation or chopping,
I am leaning towards polyurethaning it rather than coating it with oil
or beeswax. My thinking is that since I won't be chopping on it,
polyurethane will lead to a longer lasting surface without the need
for regular recoating.
Question is what type of polyurethane?
- Oil vs. Water based
- Interior vs. Exterior (spar urethane)
- Satin vs. Semigloss vs. Gloss
- Any brand recommendations?
I am looking for a surface that is the most durable and will show the
least wear-and-tear while still being safe for food surfaces.
