A Guide to Angled Worktop Draining Boards

  1. Hi,

    We’re looking at a solid wooden worktop, probably walnut and are considering an under sink with routed draining channels.

    After wood treatment, how watertight would the drainage area be? Will is discolour? and how frequently would we need to seal the routed channels and exposed edge of the wood around the sink (in particular when it drains over)?



  2. Hi Ian,

    You have come to the right people if you are looking for a worktop that features bespoke fabricated features such as drainage grooves, sink and tap cut-outs and much more besides.

    Drainage grooves are a relatively simple addition to your worktops, and look especially sophisticated on a highly dense timber such as walnut.

    As standard, our drainage grooves are available in three different shapes: straight, fan and fountain. The drainage grooves become deeper towards the edge of the work surface, allowing water to flow directly into the sink.

    Regularly oiling wooden worktops will help to prevent water damage. Find out more about how to correctly oil wood work surfaces in our Oiling Worktops Nutshell Guide

    Many Thanks,
    Adrian @ Worktop Express
