Hi all, we are in the middle of a huge kitchen reno and are almost up to the benchtops.
We planned to use 80 x 19 Blackbutt floor boards, glued and screwed to 12mm marine ply and finished with Organoil.
Although we love the look, we are begining to second guess the suitability of timber as a benchtop and are asking you to share your experiences with different benchtop materials, maintenance, ease of installation, practicality as well as a cost. (we are on a fairly tight budget)
We already have the materials to go with our first choice but are concerned about the life span of the timber in this application, so that is why we have asked the question.
It would kill me to have to start pulling the kitchen apart in a few years because it is either tired looking or did not stand up to the job.
Thanks in advance
