If you were going to replace your counter top what would be the best material to use but still looks great. I would like to have it look from the 30's or 40's but don't know if that's possible. It's not that big, an L shape about 6ft long then about 3 ft shooting off. Wood is awesome but I've never had one and they probably need treated often, I'm guessing??? Any help is appreciated!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

if you want it to look old like 30-40s then a laminate with metal edging or tile

by 1960 laminate with laminate edge

my brother did a bar in wood , there is a sealer that basically puts a clear epoxy over the wood and lets you see the wood while sealing it up well.

Don't replace surface unless you want to do so! Just resurface it.

I've been remodeling a kitchen for a month or so now to include framing in my own cabinets.

I'm gonna stone coat tops!

Saw a copper counter top and it looked really good. Believe it was copper sheeting over the original top.

Concrete! Melamine board, make the form to fit, pour it. A little wet sanding and you’ll like it! Did my kitchen last fall.
