Pine Counter Top

We are building a guest room with kitchenette and would like to use a pine countertop. What sort of finish should we use for the wood? I saw tung oil recommended in an earlier post. Is this considered a food grade finish?

Tung oil is a food friendly finish and easy to maintain. PURE tung oil is available from several furniture specialty houses, but not usually found in hardware stores and the 'box' stores.

You do NOT want a product that says "contains pure tung oil" - it has other ingredients as well.

You want a product that IS pure tung oil - read the labels
