Wood Countertop Failure -- DIY top hope?
I tried to make my own wood island countertop recently. Lets just say it didn't go well.
During some (post-failure) online research I came across a do it yourself wood countertop option where the boards are already glued up and prepped for just the finishing process. Company name is "Craft Art."
I wouldn't mind outsourcing the actual gluing of the boards to someone more qualified than I am.
I looked into doing an Ikea top instead but as a wanna-be wood worker, I just couldn't bear the construction style or lack thereof and finger jointing.
Any of you wood workers/craftsmen/craftswomen out there - have you used this product? What do you think? If you haven't used it, how does it look as an option for someone who wants to really have a hand in making my own countertop?

Thanks in advance for any advise you have.
