After breezing through the busiest period of the year, our fabrication team continues to create hundreds of bespoke hardwood worktops every week here at Worktop Express.
Last year our facility expanded to accommodate a second high-tech CNC machine, and space for additional worktops to pass through our facility without increasing the lead time. With the recent introduction of our laminate worktop cutting service, the capacity has increased even further.
This month we have picked out three elegant bespoke wooden surfaces that recently passed through our fabrication facility:
Many of the worktops that are handled by our fabrication team undergo quite unusual and intricate bespoke amendments, though our craftsmen also produce worktops with less conspicuous customisations that are equally impressive.
Soft pencil edge profiles were applied to both the top and bottom edges of this particular oak worktop, which was also given an end cap. End caps are not only an aesthetically-pleasing addition to wooden worktops, but also help protect the end grain of the timber from the excess heat radiated by adjacent appliances.
After customisation, the worktop was sanded to an extremely smooth finish and a number of coats of oil were applied to protect it during transport and installation.
Wenge worktops are among the most luxurious choices in our collection. Wenge can appear almost black in parts, though lighter flecks also occur within the dark, distinctive grain.
This customised wenge worktop features an aperture which was cut to the hob specifications provided by the customer, allowing it to be installed immediately after delivery. Once our team had finished creating the hob aperture, the surface was sanded to a very smooth finish, before being oiled.
Black American Walnut
Since its introduction a couple of years ago, our range of solid wood floating shelves has proved to be one of our most successful additions, and now comprises a variety of standard sizes and timbers (including oak, walnut, ash, iroko and beech). We also offer a bespoke floating shelf calculator on our website that allows customers to order shelves in many of the other timbers in our collection, and in bespoke sizes.
This pair of black American walnut shelves were ordered via the shelf calculator, and are intended to fit perfectly in the customer’s home. Special holes were cut in the rear of each shelf to accommodate the invisible floating shelf brackets we supply. After customisation, the shelves were sanded and pre-oiled to ensure they would be ready to mount immediately after delivery.
