Gaps in reclaimed Wood Countertop
My fiancÚ found these amazing old wood school tables (circa 1930s). We want to use them as countertops in our 1910 kitchen, finished with tung oil.
I have planed and sanded the tops which now look beautiful with all the historic distress from the children. I am fine with most of the flaws but there are some which are quite wide (1/4") and some are very deep (1/2" to all the way thru).
I am concerned about food and dirt in these cracks being difficult to clean. I would like to fill them but I really want them to be food friendly.
Does anyone have suggestions for a non-toxic wood filler? Color is not a problem as rustic is the word.
