Protect your wooden handles used in the kitchen

Utensils used in the kitchen, or around water, wooden handles can become rough and damaged from the moisture.

I have found this product to provide great protection and durability. MinWax Wipe-On Poly (a ployurethan). It is very easy to apply with a rag. Just follow the instructions on the can. Shake well, but not so vigorously that you introduce bubbles into the finish. About $12 at Home Depot or Lowes.

This will probably last you a lifetime of protecting wooden handles in about the kitchen. Works great to protect any wood product. You may want to mask off metal or plastic surfaces to prevent the poly from getting on those parts.
