Go green and use recycled, reclaimed antique wood for your counter tops. Antique Oak and Chestnut make beautiful and unique countertops. Antique Pumpkin Pine and Hemlock are also a good choice. The great thing about custom antique countertops is you can have the countertop made as thick and wide as you want.
There are many choices in finishes. If you want to chop directly on the countertop you would finish it with a natural oil such as Brazilian nut oil. If you want the counter completely sealed it can be finished with polyurethane. The picture shown is of an Antique White Oak countertop with a natural finish.
