Restoring counter

Hi, Cheryl.

The short answer is--yes. Depending on how badly damaged it is, you might not want to restore too much if it is real wood and not a laminate that just looks like wood. Leaving some of the character can become an asset. And I really like Behlen's Salad Bowl Finish on something like a maple counter top-if you choose to apply a finish at all. Real butcher blocks were not finished but also require regular cleaning and maintenance.
