-KARLBY countertop can be sanded and has the same look and feel as solid wood, but only needs to be treated with oil every now and then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best DIY Desk Grab 4 legs with this countertop (maybe some drawers too) and you are set for a very good looking big desk. Best DIY desk ever. Love the Karlby stain color and durablitly. Only issue was getting it home from Seattle / Renton IKEA, two hours away. It was out of stock every time we went back to get it. It was irritating because we kept being told they were going to have it in stalk next week, then we would drive two hours and it wouldn't be in stalk. We even called ahead before we came down. It ended up taking over two months to get it. Once we did buy it, we couldn't afford the high delivery cost to our house so we had to throw it in our compact car trunk with a ton of rope and a red flag so people would see it hanging out 3 ft. HAHA! A little sketchy but it was safe and worked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great countertop I purchased and installed this countertop and it was simple simple. For a sink I cut with a jigsaw from behind, as instructed, and cuts came out clean. The finish is a nice natural oil, and it brings out the beauty of the walnut. I added a walnut backsplash, a simple 1x4x8 foot piece from my lumber store and finished it with a similar oil/wax and you would never think they didn’t come as one piece. I did use the while 8 foot length, no cuts across for length, so I can’t say about the included cover piece. As long as you cut straight and clean it looks like exactly what they use in the factory.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for a kitchen We bought that countertop for our new kitchen and if I'm so happy with my new ikea cabinets, the countertop is a disaster! It looked very nice when we opened the box. But we found out it was really hard to cut properly and the quality is so poor that I have scratches all over just for the installation despite all the precautions we took. I have a beautiful kitchen with an awful countertop. I'm really disappointed on ikea quality for that one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice if you don’t need to cut them to size If you’re buying these to use them as one piece, they’re fine. However we bought two countertops to be cut to size and fit into our kitchen. Because the middle is particle board ikea provides edging strips to cover the cut edges. There were a couple problems here - 1) the edging strips were broken upon arrival and ikea can’t replace them (I was on the phone for over two hours and they said maybe we could get them but wouldn’t know for two weeks - after which they couldn’t get them....) 2) we tried to use the edging strips we had available and the minute they were wiped down with a slightly damp cloth they warped and cracked - so very poor quality. We ended up buying walnut veneer edging strips that come in a tape form that you iron on - the quality and ease of use is better, but the pattern and color don’t match so that stinks. Overall I wish we would’ve spent more and gotten solid walnut, but if you don’t need to cut these they’re fine (also, Ikea has the absolute worst customer service I’ve ever experienced... our original order was a few weeks late and was missing items when it arrived. The delivery driver immediately said items were missing and we’d have to contact ikea to have them sent, despite the fact they obviously knew they were missing. To get ahold of someone took hours and then it was another 3 weeks before our missing items arrived...)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Countertop that We Used for a Desk We adapted this for a desktop and it worked out brilliantly. It's easy to clean, light enough to move easily and will last.
