comment How can I remove wax from a wooden counter so I can resurface it with Danish oil?
In the picture the surface of the counter is the edge grain of the wood, and the left edge shows the end grain. End grain is sometimes used as the surface of butcher blocks and wood countertops but it can really absorb (and sometimes weep back out) liquids. Doesn't sound like the problem you're having though.

Is the counter made such that the surface is the end-grain of the wood?

comment Why aren't all houses equipped with fire sprinklers?
In my condo all the sprinklers that are in the living areas are recessed behind little cover plates and pop down when activated by high heat. This type should be pretty hard to damage by accident, and they look nicer.

comment Securing furniture to prevent tipping due to earthquakes and babies
I usually use corner brace brackets because they are cheap and available in a variety of sizes. You can also paint them if they're visible so it just blends into the wall. The straps would be easier to use if you want to hide it behind the cabinet- you first attach the strap to the stud, then move the cabinet into place and attach to the top.
