I installed some butcher block with my granite counters; hard rock maple. I sanded with 50 grit just one pass, then tack clothed; then one pass of 120 grit, then tack clothed, then applied a wood conditioner. Then sanded with 220 and tack clothed. Then stained the wood. Then applied 3 coats of tung oil. The counters have been water and stain resistant. I waited a day between the wood conditioner and the stain and another day between stain and first coat of tung oil and then a day between each extra coat of tung oil. You MUST stay clear of the counters in between. The counters are smooth as silk and beautiful. I absolutely love them.
