I'm SERIOUSLY leaning towards the DIY walnut for my 3'x6' island. I've heard waterlox is the way to go. I was just quoted $1700 for a custom walnut countertop, and on craft art, I could get it for about $600. I wont need any sink cutouts or anything, just the slab and the waterlox. Would LOVE to see some pictures if anyone out there has some!
