Love the gluelam beam countertop! Heavy! - Did you sand & seal it? Is it safe to chop food on?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Good lights can be hard to come by as a consumer," Campbell says. Mercury glass X-ray pendant shades above the countertop with their reflective insides add an exceptionally dreamy quality of light. A glulam beam from the lumber store, a more affordable alternative to butcher block, makes up the rugged countertops.
Kitchen countertop (U.S.)Benchtop (Australia)Worksurface (U.K.)Jason Chuck, the Houzz manager in Australia, surmises that “benchtop” has its origins in a workshop workbench, but like many Aussies, he doesn’t really know or care. I tried asking him what a bench (like what you sit on) is called, and he was confused, thinking I was talking about sitting on a kitchen counter. “How about a park bench?” I ask. “Oh,” he says. “We’d call that a park bench.” Riiiiight. Vivienne Sung, Houzz’s U.K. manager, was a little more blunt about “worksurface.” “Because it’s a surface you work on,” she says, playfully. “We call things what they are.” Hey!But would a Brit understand what a countertop was? “No,” she says. “You could say, ‘On top of the kitchen counter’ but not ‘countertop.’” Huh?
“Chilly Bin is the NZ version of a cooler or Eskie.Air Con is the shortened version of air conditioning. Roof is pronounced ‘rooof’ over there and not ‘ruf’ as I bark out.Tennis shoes are trainers in the the UK and Oz.French dressing in NZ is what we would think of as Catalina here.And there are so many names for body parts that aren’t the same from area to area that can really get you in trouble!And if you hear someone say, ‘there’s a possum in the tank,’ then don’t drink the water.” — Houzz user bsgibbsI love language lessons!
