Not to be confused with the curved edge of the same name often used for laminate countertops, waterfall countertops continue pass the joint of the cabinet edge and run vertically down towards the floor, creating a seamless, elegant look. Covering the sides with a hard, durable surface like granite or quartz can help prevent this.

On the far end of the island, the countertop extends off of the cabinetry to create leg room for a seating area. Be sure to ask your stone fabricator if they’re prepared to install a waterfall edge before choosing to use their services. While end panels are a perfectly viable way to bring closure to the ends of an island or the end of a base cabinet, if they’re made of wood they’re still susceptible to accidental scratching, particularly if you have pets or children. The precise edges require the proper machinery and skilled craftsmen. If they’re comfortable creating this edge for you, be sure to provide them with all the measurements of your island, including the sides.

What Everyone Should Know About Finishing Oak by wood-finishes-direct.com

Clear products are inevitably not completely clear so they tend to ‘bring out’ the natural colours of the oak, normally making it a bit darker and warmer. On the other hand it may be the silvering that needs removing. A very good indication of how your oak will look once it has been finished with a ‘clear’ coat is to dampen an area by applying some water with a clean cloth or sponge. Some customers like the way oak colours when clear coatings are applied to it whilst others want it to be as close as possible to how it looks in its natural state. Acorns can be used for making flour or they can be roasted for making acorn coffee. Wine barrels are made from oak and it is the tannin that helps to give the wine its’ colour. Oak trees regularly live to be 500 years old, although 1, 000 years old oaks are also known.

Is oak furniture treated with any finishes which would degenerate in an outdoor environment?

Pay special attention to end grain such as the bottom of the legs. If possible, it’s always a good idea to soak the end grain of the timber in the preservative so that it reaches saturation and then the same with the oil ones the preservative has fully dried (allow 48 hours) as it is normally the end grain that is most susceptible to the elements. Or maybe clear wax polish would be suitable in this situation?

When applying the wood preservative, the colour of the wood will darken, giving a damp appearance, but will return to its natural look when the preservative has fully dried.

You are so generous with your time and your expertise!

It is several hundred years old and has not been touched for a long, long time – it looks dried out and uncared for. This product comes as a custard/liquid beeswax consistency at normal room temperature, is easily applied with a brush, cloth or roller and dries within 15 minutes if applied as a thin coat. Always do a test area before embarking on any project to make sure that you’re happy with the results that the product gives. Both of these products will enhance the natural grain and colour of the wood. Can we change it at this stage, through using a stripping product or sanding?

However, we don’t want to compromise it’s current color, so willing to sacrifice pillows if needed. This product does become more shiny when buffed so you may find that the sheen level may increase over time where the pillows are in contact with the wood. The door is in an enclosed (glassed in) porch, north-east facing, so won’t get any rain & almost no direct sun. I applied a couple of coats of this without thinning it for the first few coats with white spirits which it stated on the back of the tung oil bottle. Ultimately it is the catkins of many oaks that turn into the acorns, so maybe that popular phrase… ‘mighty oaks from little acorns grow’ should be ‘mighty oaks from little catkins grow’ although it doesn’t quite have the same ring does it?

Whilst the question is easy, the answer is not so straight forward. The levels of rain, wind and sun will make a difference to how quickly the oak changes colour. The oil also repels water, thus preventing it from going black.

This is not just a case of simply applying ‘clear products’ as they bring out the natural colours of the wood, thus making it little darker and more golden. The look achieved when the wood is damp/wet is very close to how it will look once a clear varnish or a clear oil has been applied. It is always good to try and finish with a clear coat if possible because if the wood gets scratched it is the clear coat that scratches before the coloured coat and therefore the scratch is not as noticeable. The reason for this is that the pores of the wood are more open thus allowing the oil to sink into the wood better. Both products are resistant to heat such as hot plates and cups and completely food safe so ideal for a table. This combination of products will help to protect the table from things such as mould. These can be dipped in the preservative for several hours or overnight so that the preservative can penetrate deeply into the base of the legs to offer the best protection. Simply apply 2 thin coats and allow to fully dry before exposing to heat. I see in your question that you would like to ‘enhance the wood’. So my question is, in this situation will these two finishing products keep the natural look as you suggest, or will the preservative darken or warm up the colour?

What would you recommend to care for it but retain it’s character?

This will help to feed the wood and can be buffed if desired to produce a sheen. They are also easy to maintain and repair if the surface becomes worn, stained or scratched. Always do a test area before embarking on any project to be sure that you are happy with the result that a product gives. I want to retain the natural look as much as possible and do not want a high sheen finish. There is absolutely no paint on one side and is mainly grey, but the other has a faint bluish tint to it in places which works well with our wall color. Is there something we should put on it to preserve it and maybe make it a little less rough on our pillows?

The sheen can be taken down again by just applying a fresh layer of wax and not buffing it. Although this product is ‘touch dry’ in just a couple of hours, allow a full 48 hours between coats and before applying an exterior wood oil. Always do a test area and read the manufacturers instructions on the tin or container before starting any project.

We want to finish them with a soft, subtle sheen but one which will also protect them against the elements. For the best results, apply 2 coats of preservative allowing at least 24 to 48 hrs drying time between coats and before applying an oil. This will enhance the natural grain and colour of the timber as well as darkening it slightly to give an almost damp, satin-matt finish. I presume this is white oak they are using now in the furniture range.

You should be able to remove most of the tung oil by wiping with white spirit which will break down and dissolve much of the oil, have plenty of dry rags to hand. These will provide a good level of protection for your furniture while retaining the lighter colour of the freshly sanded wood. I would prefer a matte, non-oily finish and could tolerate a slight deepening in shade but want to keep the natural look as much as possible.

Grilled Marinated Leg Of Lamb Recipe by epicurious.com

I used this marinate on a leg of lamb (bone in) and injected some of the marinate into the lamb. The drippings, once cooked down, made an excellent gravy for mashed potatoes.Fresh pitas with thinly sliced sweet onions, chopped organic tomatoes and liberally sauced with tzatziki. I should have started it on the direct side first, and then moved them to the indirect side. I use peppers and mushroom with it and cut the lamb into bite size pieces. I also add one tablespoon of finely chopped fresh rosemary as we love it with lamb plus it goes very well with the garlic and oregano. Made exactly as written except did not skewer it and my husband said just fine to grill without skewers. Didn’t have time to make this a day ahead, so it got only 8 hours to marinate, but that was enough to make it really tasty. Only problem is there is never any leftover because everyone loves it so much. I am yet to use this exact recipe, however have used this combination as a roast leg and as a butterflied leg many times and is it flawless in flavour and tenderness. I grilled it over the campfire, and it turned out to be the best lamb we’ve ever had. It turned out great and received compliments from everyone at the table. This cut of meat shouldn’t be hard to find, but if you get one that is boned and tied, ask your butcher to butterfly it. Bring lamb to room temperature, about 1 hour, before grilling. Will definitely make again and plan ahead so have at least 8 hours to marinate, to see if makes a difference. I then put the lamb into a pressure cooker, poured the excess marinate over it, and added 1 -1/2 cups of beef broth. It was nicely done with some well done parts and some parts with some pink left in it. Took the frozen one out a month later, defrosted on countertop and it was just as good as the fresh one.

Our family & our friends loved it — and the kids went back for seconds. I buy a boneless leg of lamb and butterfly and clean it myself. I wouldn’t change a thing – except to buy a bigger leg of lamb!

I cooked it a little longer than recommended, did not use the skewers, and only marinated it for about 5 hours. I will definitely make this a standard dish for dinner parties.
