Latest obsession...



...wood countertops. I'm not sure how well they hold up, but they certainly look nice. Does anyone have wood countertops? Thumbs up or down?

I have wood tops on one section of my counter area. I love being able to work directly on the counter. Just clean it with some vinegar and lemon to keep it sanitary. I personally like how it gets all roughed up with age and use.

we have a section of wood counter off to the side of our apartment. Since it's a rental, I've never been able to shake the hygiene issue. It's pretty, but I don't prepare food on it. I use it as a display area!

we installed wood countertops (ikea) throughout the kitchen kept our big old white sink and installed a beautiful hand-made tile (trikeenan.com) backsplash - similar to middle pic but not nearly so clean :)

love the way it looks, first couple years we only did the oil but with this summer Bob sanded all that off and sealed it - water around the faucet was damaging the wood.

I love the wood and can't imagine any other counter top.

I have a wooden counter/butcher block style in a small section above my dishwasher. I really love it, but we don't cut on it. I still have to seal it, but I love the look of it and can't bear the idea of marking up the surface.

These are gorgeous.

I love your blog, and my own live-edge rosewood counter tops. They aren't sealed, I just rub them down with oil from time to time.
