I recently completed a 8/4 hard maple counter. It is not a cutting surface but is near a sink and gets water contact. I applied 4 coats of Watco Danish oil, wet/dry sanding the last coat and leaving this for a full week to cure. The result was a very smooth satin sheen and looked great. As soon as there was water contact though the grain was raised and the surface felt slightly rough.
Can anyone give me suggestions on what to do, what went wrong or if I have used the wrong product entirely for this application.
With many thanks
