The festive season is well and truly in full swing, yet our fabrication team haven’t let the festivities slow them down. In the quest to create the most beautiful bespoke solid wooden workbenches around, our skilled team has fabricated no less than 350 pieces so far this month.
Here are this month’s top 3 favourite fabrications.
This specialist worktop may not be particularly big, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in gorgeous features. Our fabricators started by cutting it from a larger piece of oak, then applied a 40mm end cap. Afterwards, an ‘ogee’ endcap was routed around 2 corners of the worktop, and a small irregular cut out was applied to the rear edge. Like all of the worktops that pass through our fabrication department, the worktop was then treated with 2 coats of oil, before being thoroughly dried, inspected and wrapped ready to deliver to the customer.

There’s little that cannot be created by our highly trained fabrication team at the helm of our CNC machine. In this instance, they were asked to create a large elliptical piece of iroko as a perfect dining table top. Manufactured from one 3m worktop, two large eclipse ends were added in order to create the perfect elliptical shape. Afterwards, plenty of coats of oil were applied, and the worktop was left to dry for a perfect finish.
Iroko is consistently one of our most popular worktops, and considering the beautiful colouration and unique grain pattern, it should really come as no surprise. If you like the look of this exotic timber, visit our iroko worktops page for more details.
As if any further proof were needed of our fabrication team’s skills, this iroko worktop has almost every bespoke alteration we can think of. Cut from a 4m iroko worktop, the team started by making no fewer than 6 irregular cuts into the worktop, before creating an additional hob cut-out in the centre portion of the surface. Next, two small radius corners were applied to the front of the worktop to soften off the edges, before a pencil profile was applied around the entire front edge. Last – but not least – a butt joint was added to both ends in order to join it up with two further iroko worktops that will connect either side.
