diy--ikea wood counter--which poly coat?
So FINALLY, the Beech 73 x 39 arrived at the Seattle/Renton IKEA. We drove like mad people to get it..whew..3 left.
We are thinking of lightly sanding (to remove any treatment they put on there) and using a polyvinyl coating. I am leaning towards a semi-gloss as I am not fond of ultra shiny stuff. Will I be sorry? I think the Beech is dark enough that I don't need to stain. Will I be sorry?
If you did polyvinyl on yours, do you have a brand you can recommend??
We will only have the induction cooktop on it and I will have a cutting board to chop so no actual work on the countertop.
Any ramblings, thoughts, suggestions are appreciated.
