    Reclaimed lumber: thanks for the link. I am doing reclaimed heart pine, and my supplier recommends Tung oil, but all the pictures I like are clear poly. Is there a penetrating oil that won't give it too much orange glow?

    I ended up doing waterlox and my floors are gorgeous. I love the color and the fact that they can be touched up.

    Flooring is 8" wide antique (reclaimed) heart pine. Finish is several coats of ordinary oil based polyurethane. Reclaimed flooring works well over heated floors as it does not expand and contract the way "new" wood will. Still important not to set the floor temperature too high.

    Is there a stain on the wood?

    Island is strips of cherry with a mineral oil (food safe) finish. This finish generally works fine for wood counters but the area around the sink is very difficult. undermount sink exposes end grain and very hard to seal up effectively. Best to do a drop in sink in a wood counter.

    island top is strips of cherry "butcher block" - it was custom made at the contractors mill shop. I don't recommend an undermount sink in a wood countertop -the end grain absorbs water - better to do a drop in sink.

    Pendant lights over the island are on a pulley system - works well for task lighting when low - and good to raise the "obstruction" when not needed. This project was done several years ago - I believe the lights came from Visual Comfort, but I am not sure. Several companies make them.

            Kitchen. The kitchen is another room that sees the full benefits of vinegar — the basic mix can clean virtually every surface in this room.Use the basic mix to clean and disinfect the refrigerator, surfaces, tile floors and cutting boards.For sparkling dishes, pour 2 cups of distilled white vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher in addition to regular dishwasher detergent and wash with a full cycle.Clean and deodorize the kitchen drain by pouring 2 cups of boiling water followed by 2 cups of white distilled vinegar down each drain.

            16. 3 Steps to Choosing Kitchen Finishes WiselyHouzz discussion boards are full of readers asking about the best way to coordinate their kitchen finishes. These tips — compiled from three Houzz kitchen professionals — help homeowners figure out what they should prioritize and how to make everything work together.

            1. Start with your countertops. “Countertops require careful contemplation, especially for a large island, as this can be the biggest single item of color and texture,” says Ahmann. This large surface area is a great place to start and can be the basis for the rest of your kitchen’s materials palette.Choose a countertop that’s durable and easy to clean. Justrich recommends looking into granite or composite materials like Caesarstone first. For a bigger statement, go for stainless steel, zinc or natural wood. Aim for light, smooth and reflective materials. Large-format tiles or slabs of stone will minimize grout lines and create a smooth and easy-to-clean surface. Kelly recommends sticking with a single countertop material, with a slight variation at the pantry or island, for consistency and simplicity. Review kitchen remodelers and get started

            Like the way the pine flooring is laid out, vertical to the kitchen area is the 'hall way'...
