The end of the year fast approaches, bringing with it our last chance to look back at the solid wooden worktop surfaces that were customised by our incredibly skilled fabrication team during 2015. This month, two beautiful oak worktops and a black American walnut worktop made the grade.
Our fabrication team are shutting down for a short period over Christmas and New Year, but will be back in full force for 2016, and we will no doubt have plenty more fabulous worktops to share with you then.
For now, here are December’s top three bespoke worktops:
Our oak worktops attract plenty of attention all year round, and so it should come as no surprise that many beautiful examples of bespoke oak pass through the hands of our fabrication team every month – this month is no exception.
This L-shaped piece of oak was made by cutting down a wider worktop, and also includes a very unusual irregular cut-out that was created to fit a specialist overmounted corner sink. A smooth radius was added to the front corner, and a number of coats of oil were applied in order to protect the worktop during transit and installation.
Black American Walnut
Black American walnut worktops are some of the most luxurious in our collection. The combination of rich chocolate-coloured timber with stunning grain variance makes black walnut an unmistakable timber that is widely used in both modern and traditional kitchens.
Our fabrication team created this particular black American walnut worktop, which is due to become the surface for a stunning kitchen island. Measuring nearly 1M wide, this wide worktop also had three soft radius corners and a hob cut-out applied by our handy experts, and was pre-oiled and dried before being wrapped and delivered by our 2Man team.
Full Stave Prime Oak
Because of the unrivalled popularity of oak, we offer a wide collection of oak worktops that are manufactured from very high-quality European wood. ‘Prime’ oak worktops are so named because of their wonderful, even colouration and flawless appearance; and, when it comes to the full stave variant, offer an extremely luxurious method by which to enjoy this unmistakable timber.
This particular example of our full stave Prime Oak worktops was designed in conjunction with our fabrication team, in order to satisfy the customer’s requirements for a breakfast bar and communal cooking area.
It features two large radius corners to provide a comfortable seating area at one end, whilst the hob cut-out was requested to perfectly fit the hob that the customer had chosen. Like almost all of the other fabricated worktops that pass through our facility, it has been pre-oiled to bring out the timber’s natural lustre and offer additional protection.
