Wood Counters for Disney® | Details
The White Oak wood counters were crafted in flat grain construction. In a flat grain counter, the wood pieces are premium-clear wide plank flat sawn boards. The pieces are generally wider in size, enhancing the long modulary rays that white oak is highly renowned for.
Grothouse crafted two counters for the café that are 1 ½” thick by 33 1/8” by 153”. The counters include a classic 1/8” Roundover on the top horizontal edges, bottom horizontal edges, and vertical corners.
Sealed with Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish in Satin Sheen, the counters will stand up to the demanding commercial use. Durata® Finish creates a waterproof surface. Water left on the surface simply dries with no water rings. It is also highly chemically resistant, even lacquer thinner does not affect the cured surface. Red wine, vinegar, alcohol, soaps and coffee will not affect the finish.
