Any of the epoxies that are a bar type finish will work no matter what the brand. They are all food safe to my knowledge also. Some paint stores carry it or you can purchase it online.

I would not attempt an undermount sink. I can forsee too many problems and personally I would refuse if asked to do it.

Here is another kitchen countertop that I just finished about a month or so ago.

Got a well organized kitchen setup there...

While they can be attractive I suppose, I would never have wooden countertops. But then, I live in a log house so there's plenty of wood already.
