Great price, Great results!
The price can’t be beat and we got the results we were after. I used wood conditioner, 2 coats of a dark walnut stain and 4 coats of a Tung oil/resin top coat.

The countertop arrived on time and was in great shape. I only had to trim a little off from one end, drill a few hole sand stand and seal. Attached the legs and I have a new computer desk.

Arrived in perfect condition. We stained the top and sealed it. This was a perfect piece for my island project.

Cupped 1/8 of an inch
Should have read the reviews and checked that it was flat at the store, but it was cupped 1/8 of an inch when I got it home. Wanted to build a couple desks but did a dry run using this as a workbench instead. Tools and work pieces rock a bit, but otherwise it's OK for that purpose. Wouldn't use it as a desk or kitchen countertop though. BTW: You may want to rethink your cupped/crowned logo :)

This is a very beautiful piece of wood. I am an inexperienced builder and I was able to easily stain and seal this for a lifting workbench. I haven't done a crazy amount of building projects on it but I've used it for constantly for small projects and it's held up very well over the last several years. It's in perfect condition still. I plan on buying more of this wood for other projects.

Maintenance Required
Totally worth the buy but be prepared to put in the maintenance to ensure it stays and keeps its integrity. We had to condition it to ensure the stain we chose would come out right. It didn’t lol but after putting on a good quality oil we got exactly what we were looking for. We know have the counter space and the warm element we were looking for in the kitchen. Happy with product so far

Beware of Fillers and Inconsistent quality!

I purchased 3 of these countertops (one 8ft and two 4ft) - two of these (the 8ft and one of the 4ft) have spots in the tops from wood filler used in them. Beware! Like me, you’ll find out after cutting and finishing, at which point they are no longer returnable. Inconsistent quality - large gouges and cracks in the wood.

There may be some filler on the back side of the blocks but not the front side. HFAria

It is very heavy and hard to manage for one person but well worth it. I finished it with amber urethane and it is beautiful as my new countertop. I used what was probably meant to be the bottom but I love the character of the knots in the wood.
