Wood and finish should be the customers choose to a degree. Maybe see what there worktops are made from and what finish they have.

Glue, I use Titebond III for these type of products.

Tips. Have a drip bead. The bed needs to have a slight taper.

Start. Well after getting the required info from the customer I would cut the bed, make a jig to cut and taper the channels with a router, cut the channels and drip bead then do the rest and assemble.
