– pine board – wood glue – pocket hole jig and screws – brad nailer and nails – stain of choice and top coat (waterproof protectant)
Determine desired dimensions of your countertops. My depth was 18.5 so two 1×10’s. I had to “rip” 2.5” off one of the 1×10’s
Connect boards with wood glue and pocket hole jig and screws. I also clamped the boards together to minimize gaps at center seam. Once glue has dried, cut board to desired length.
Anchor top to framework with 18 gauge brad nails or your choice of screws
Stain your countertop with desired color. Once stain has dried, apply two coats of a waterproof top coat to protect your new wood countertops.
