Solid Wood Worktops


Whether you are creating a traditional cottage style kitchen or the latest minimalist designer look, nothing beats the look and feel of a solid wood worktop.

With a solid wood worktop your kitchen will be unique, because no two pieces of wood are the same. It will be solid and tough. It will be easy to live with, warm to the touch and durable.

Whether you choose a light wood like Ash, a rugged traditional wood like European Oak or a wild stripy exotic wood like Zebrano you can be assured that they will all be ethically sourced from managed forests. The timbers are first air dried then kiln dried to 8-10% moisture content before being manufactured into worktops in a modern factory in Denmark.

All our solid wood worktops are made from finger jointed staves of hardwood which are glued together with a super strong construction adhesive. The staves are 41.5mm wide, and the width of the worktop is simply determined by the number of staves that are used. Our stock worktops are either 664mm or 913mm wide, but we can order other sizes to suit your project. We can even get continuous stave worktops with no finger joints in most species.

Solid wood worktops must be treated with oil to protect them against the ingress of moisture, but this needn't be a chore. Modern wood treatments by Osmo or HaBiol will enhance the appearance of your worktop whilst ensuring long lasting protection.

Species Available from Stock

European Oak - A strong and durable timber with plenty of warmth and character. Oak has a timeless appeal and correctly treated will last indefinitely. European Oak is a light golden colour with a strong grain pattern and can be used to complement both traditional and modern kitchens.

Light Steamed Beech - A light tan coloured wood popularly used in the manufacture of furniture. The steaming process brings out the natural colour and enhances the grain. Try it in combination with cream doors and a Belfast Sink.

Iroko - Similar to Teak in appearance this timber comes in with a yellowish tint but soon darkens to a rich brown. It is a very hard wood and naturally oily making it ideal for use as a kitchen worksurface. Works well with hand painted furniture.

European Walnut - A contemporary favourite, European Walnut is rich and dark yet has lighter sapwood staves that add character to the worktop. Popular in combination with Mocha or Latte gloss slab doors.

Black Oak - The heritage and character of Oak with a rich chocolaty colour, Black Oak isn't just stained on the surface, the black goes right the way through the board thanks to a special process. Combine Black Oak with an Ivory painted door and you'll create a stunning look that will stand the test of time.

Heritage Oak Rustic - Some customers prefer their wooden worktops to look more rugged. Our Heritage Oak fits the bill perfectly with double width staves, and retaining all the knots and splits that would normally be discarded. Slightly darker in colour than European Oak, Heritage Oak pairs well with Painted Shaker style Kitchens.

Natural Ash - Ash is a naturally light blond coloured wood. Combined with the slightly darker heartwood staves, Natural Ash has plenty of appeal to those who appreciate the prominent grain that Ash demonstrates perfectly. It is perfect to combine with other surfaces as a feature such as an Island top.
