We offer four (4) different finishes on our countertops - each for a different application:
 
 
 
 
The WATERSHED Finish is derived from a
time-tested, wooden boat-building process.
It starts with a fully saturated, epoxy base coat to seal and fortify the wood fibers followed by rich glazes, and finally, multiple coats of high-tech, catalyzed polyurethane.The result of this ten-step process is unique to the industry; a highly durable finish full of depth and nuance - yet water-proof!  Furthermore, it's easy to care for - no wax, no polish - just wipe with a soft, clean cloth and mild detergent.
 
The FURNITURE
Finish features the
same top-coat as
 Watershed and is
just as resistant to
common house-
hold liquids & wear
(see chart >>>>>),
however, the Furniture Finish is water-resistant but not water-proof. Clean this finish just as you would the Watershed.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Resistance to Common Household Liquids
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
      
       According to UNI EN 12720, results are evaluated
       as follows:
 
  1.  Pronounced marking, film structure is compromised or 
       the film is completely or partially removed, or filter
       paper adheres to the surface.
 
  2.  Pronounced marking, but film structure is unaltered.
 
  3.  Slight marking visible from various angles; for
       example as a ring.
 
  4.  Slight change in gloss evident only when placed in
       specific lighting, or only on very close examination
       with correct lighting.
 
 5. No visible damage or sign.

Watershed Finish

Please Note:  The catalyzed polyurethane topcoat used on our Watershed and Furniture finishes is as durable as any product on the market, however, any wood finish will scratch under the right circumstances.
Please be aware that scratches in dark finishes will show more than in light or medium colors.

Waterlox Finish

Corduroy Walnut
The WATERLOX Finish is a blend of oil and varnish that dries to a satin sheen and looks very similar to the Furniture Finish but with a more golden tone.  The primary advantage to this finish is that it can be renewed in the field but doesn't require regular maintainance.
 
 
 
 
The CENTURY OIL Finish is a blend of  tung  and linseed oils that dries to a matte finish.  This finish requires regular maintenance but allows for scratches and knife marks (if used as a cutting board) to be sanded out and refinished in the field.
