It sounds like you're asking about sealers of finish material. You shouldn't use any oils as the wood will yellow with age. You should use something like our durable acrylic but if you don't have professional equipment or resources you could use Rubio Monacoat clear natural sealer! Stay away from line seed oil or mineral oils. To keep the top white, it's best to use a professional acrylic seal. You'll need a spray room to do this. We would avoid using polyurethane as they tend to yellow. Try to get just a clear lacquer and if near sunlight, get one with UV inhibitors. This is a VERY difficult DIY project, so all in all, it might be advantageous to stick with a professional on this one!

How are the stainless and wood seamed? - I am currently planning my kitchen remodel but I have the question above to answer. I am covering the peninsula with stainless for a cooktop, and the main counter will be granite. I hope you can help me. Yours is beautiful!

Avoid any type of seam by doing it on a different level.

Thanks! It appears this stainless falls in the middle of the butcher that correct?

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab
I'm not sure how they did it here, but if I were to do something like this, the two pieces wouldn't necessarily be glued together. The wood top would be screwed from underneath to the cabinets it sits on, and the ditto for the stainless steel one. A bean of clear silicone would be used between the two in order to avoid a crevasse from crumbs, but not to glue them together per se.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Layouts: Island or a Peninsula?
You can still mix countertop materials when you have a peninsula rather than and island. Here the butcher block top doubles as a prep area and snack counter.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Kitchen Fixes for Nomads
Replace your laminate counters with butcher block. This is a great and affordable fix that is well worth the effort of taking out the sink and hiring a plumber. Butcher block is natural, neutral and terrific. It may not be the best for the long term, depending on how well it's maintained, but if you're looking for something cheap and stylish, this is your answer.
