By using only the latest machinery and cutting methods, coupled with traditional best practice, our bespoke cutting service saves you both time and money. Although wood worktops can be fitted with limited knowledge, our templating service will ensure that all worktops are cut and finished to your exact demands, with absolutely no compromise.

Pre-oiling Service:

Worktop pre-oiling service (Oak worktop)

All worktops will be fully sealed with at least two coats to the top and bottom side, with four coats applied to the edges and endgrains. We now utilise HABiol, an industrial-grade oil, throughout our pre-oiling service; this is a product that is specially-formulated for use in automated machines such as ours and as such requires fewer coats to achieve a strong and resistant finish. This treatment is also beneficial in that it prepares the worktops for future maintenance with our recommended aftercare oil, Rustins Danish Oil (these products are compatible).

Our pre-oiling service is mandatory when any other bespoke fabrication options are requested. As such, your worktops will arrive in optimum condition and ready for installation. Please note that you must apply a coat of oil to your worktops immediately after installation (and three coats to any newly-cut edges), however: for this purpose we recommend that a Rustins Maintenance Kit is purchased with your order.

Our Homag CNC machine used to cut bespoke worktops

If you would like your kitchen worktops cut to size, we are pleased to offer a cutting service that can cater to your exact specifications. Our professional service can cut both the width and the length of your work surface, to achieve the precise dimensions required (in mm). The cut edge will also be refinished.

We use the highest quality Homag saw to ensure an accurate and perpendicular cut, and we also service our machine blades weekly to allow for consistent repeat cutting.

Edge Profiling:

We offer a variety of different edge profiles that will allow you to customise the finish to perfection.

In our opinion, worktops complete with an edge profile do have a more "finished" appearance, although it is also popular to keep solid wood worktops square edged to create a chunky finish. As a general rule of thumb, an edge profile will create a smoother and more hardwearing edge, making the wood worktop less prone to damage from surface knocks or impact.

Edge-profiling should be considered if you opt for any ellipse ends or radius corners.

Our pencil top edge is the most popular option.

Unless requested otherwise, we profile the top edge of the cut-out to allow for adequate water drainage, and to better protect the edge against damage from impact.

We will also cut the inside corners square if required.

We highly recommend leaving a 100mm gap between the edge of the cut-out and the end of the worktop, to ensure that the strength and stability of the worktop is not compromised.

Bespoke Oak 720mm wide worktop with 430mm ellipse end

Ellipsed end worktops create a practical yet elegant surface, useful for informal meals or entertaining. The beauty of solid wood surfaces is that they can be cut and shaped to any imaginary size to create a wonderful feature.

Apply an ellipse end to breakfast bars, tabletops, islands or simply the freestanding end of a unit to create a functional area. We can rout an ellipse to any size radius.

Radius Corners:

Curved units are becoming increasingly popular and we offer a radius corner cutting service to accommodate this. Wooden kitchen worktops can be cut to precisely match any kitchen doors with radius corners, creating an even, smooth, streamlined finish.

We can cut to standard supplied manufacturer's radii, or bespoke sizes if required. Radius corners can also be added to the end of a row of units to provide a softer, safe finish, especially when young children are a concern.

Drainage Grooves:

Drainage grooves are the perfect finishing touch for your worktop, exuding a sense of sophistication that can only be achieved with solid surfaces.

Drainage grooves are not only a functional addition but a wonderful feature. As such we have recently expanded our range to include two stylish new options: fan and fountain drainage grooves. Each drainer groove type is applied in sets of six (please note that there is no difference in the breadth that the three different groove sets cover: the contrast between the three designs is merely stylistic).

Our drainage grooves are tapered to allow for natural drainage.

It is highly recommended to choose at least one set of drainage grooves when opting for an undermounted or Belfast sink.

Standard drainer groove length is 450mm, although we can accommodate longer / shorter lengths if required.

Maple Worktop with butt joint

Solid wood kitchen worktops should only be joined with a standard butt joint. Mitre and 45° joints should not be used.

Our fabrication team will rout three apertures for worktop connector bolts to the underside of both worktops.

Once the worktops arrive on site, you will simply have to bolt the worktops together by tightening three worktop connector bolts (supplied).

We recommend inserting a worktop sealant between the worktops when joining to create a water-resistant seal.

Cherry Worktop with standard end cap

End caps should be used when installing wooden worktops adjacent to freestanding ovens (Rangemaster, Aga, Rayburn etc).

End caps are created by cutting a worktop across the width, and then joining the offcut to the end of the worktop in question. This conceals the end grain, preventing this section from drying out and splitting over time as a result of prolonged exposure to excessive heat.

Worktop end caps also portray a "finished" look and are sometime requested purely as a feature.

Standard end cap width is 40mm and full stave end cap width is 90mm, although bespoke sizes can also be created if required.

WEX Wireless Worktop Charger and Recess:

If you would like to incorporate one of our standalone WEX Wireless Worktop Chargers into your wooden worktop to create an invisible charging solution, please select this option.

Our team will cut an 80mm diameter recess into the underside of the worktop into which one of our wireless charging units snugly fits. Should you wish, we can also brand the top of the worktop, so that you know the exact location on which to sit your device in order to charge.

We recommend that the inlay for the WEX Wireless Worktop Charger is positioned at least 25mm in from the edges of the worktop to retain the structural integrity of the timber.

Moisture Barrier:

Worktop moisture barrier example

Worktop moisture barriers should be used for kitchens that incorporate undermounted appliances that emit large amounts of heat such as dishwashers, washing machines and fridges.

Moisture barriers are sections of specialist foil that are applied to the underside of the worktop directly above the appliance.

We recommend that moisture barriers are applied on site, using heat reflective tape or a suitable adhesive.

Worktop Upstands:

We have a wide range of worktop upstands available to match our wooden work surfaces.

Although not part of our fabrication service as such, we highly recommend that upstands are fitted to wooden worktops.

Solid wood upstands have a variety of benefits such as concealing the expansion gap, easing the fitting of worktop to out-of-square walls, as well as providing a seamless finish.

Upstands are available in all matching species in 3M X 80mm X 18mm sizes, please view the relevant timber page and the upstands are visible just below the list of worktop sizes.

Bespoke upstands are available, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
