How difficult is it to finish a wood counter top?

12 years ago

I just discovered that Craft Art is selling unfinished walnut edge grain counter tops for less than half the price of the finished. How difficult would it be to finish it myself? The island top will be 7'x3'. I'm thinking of using a pure tung oil/citrus solvent half and half mix from The Real Milk Paint Co. Is this going to be harder than it sounds? Should I attempt it or just pay the higher price to have them finish it for me. I am willing to put in the time and effort to save $1100 price difference as long as I am able to get a good result. Thanks for any advice!
