Hi, I am making a softwood worktop in my wife's pottery studio. Can anyone help me with what treatment I should put on the worktop surface once it's built. It will have to withstand clay, slip, glaze, etc.

Any advise appreciated.

Softwood is unsuitable, use laminate worktop.

Laminate worktop is not suitable for a general pottery workshop.
Unless you always use something between the clay and worktop the clay will stick to it.
The worktop needs to be made from an unsealed wood. Any wood is fine as it really doesn't get that wet.
I have used good non notty softwoods and also marine or exterior garde ply. Scaffold boards sanded or planed smooth are excellent.
Either or really, hope it helps...
