How does a wood countertop stay pristine and waterproof?

Grothouse has their own Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish. This finish creates a scratch and water-resistant surface that is harder than Tung Oil Urethanes. And yes, liquids like water, wine, vinegar, alcohol, and coffee will not affect the finish if spilled. And most importantly, this finish is completely food safe!
