how do you keep end-grain from absorbing water from undermount sink? - I currently have such a counter-top, unsealed, on which I work directly. I would love to have an undermount sink in a similar countertop elsewhere in the kitchen, but fear that water will destroy it. I do apply mineral oil regularly, but can't imagine this sealer would stand up to sink usage. Thank you.

Mineral oil never fully hardens, but rather only conditions the wood. There are plenty of food safe oils that will harden and provide sufficient protection, such as pure tung oil or pure walnut oil. You would also be safe to use a polyurethane if you wanted, as most finishes are pretty well food safe after 30 days of curing.

Hi hellefamily,
The faucet appears to be very similar to the Danze Opulence Bridge Faucet (SKU D404557)
http://www.nationalbuildersupply.com/danze-opulence-deck-mount-kitchen-faucet-d404557-chrome/p105403

I hope that helps!

labels for bread/snacks - how were the labels for bread/snacks applied, were they hand made or is there a stencil available.

The lettering was actually engraved right into the wood, then a darker blue paint was applied before the final lighter blue color was rolled across the face of the drawerhead. Doing it that way means it's permanent; you could also just hand paint the lettering on the face of the drawerhead so it could be painted over some day if you ever wanted to change it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Tiffany Carboni added this to Kitchen Ideas for Bread Lovers
Bread is so much a priority in this kitchen that a drawer proudly flaunts its dedication. "The lettering was engraved right into the wood," says designer Amy Britton of Artisan Kitchens. "Then dark blue paint was applied before the final lighter blue was rolled across the face." Tip: Hand paint lettering (freehand or with a stencil) onto a drawer for a similar effect that can be painted over later if need be.
UsesBecause of its noteworthy toughness, hard maple is an excellent choice for flooring. It also serves well as a kitchen countertop due to its closed-pore density. Some people prefer to use their maple countertop as a chopping block and view the eventual scuffed-up surface as adding overall character to a room. Others prefer to keep their maple countertop in prime condition, maintaining it by simply wiping it dry after each use.Maple is also an excellent choice for baseboards, door frames and other mouldings that are subject to more intense levels of use and abuse.
