Using Wooden Worktops for Desks: A Nutshell Guide
Whilst the majority of our customers purchase our hardwood worktops for use in kitchens, we have been pleased to hear that a number of customers have used worktops to create stunning desks in their home or at the office.
Our wooden worktops make ideal office surfaces as they are extremely hard-wearing and easily adjustable.
Fabricating Your Desk Worktop
No matter what space you have available, or how you would like your bespoke worktops finished, our in-house fabrication team can assist. Using the latest CNC machinery, our team can make even the most elaborate worktop designs come to life: cutting worktops to your required size; creating butt joints to connect more than one worktop together; or adding soft edge profiles, internal radius corners and even holes for cabling.
Get your worktop cut to size: just £15 for the 1st cut, with discounts available for multiple cuts.
Enjoy a smooth edge profile: only £5 per linear metre, and available in a range of designs.
Choose a streamlined radius corner: just £20 for a radius corner cut to your specification.
Join two worktops together for a corner desk: priced at just £35 for a butt join, including fixtures.
Add a circular cut out for keeping cables tidy: 35mm holes available for only £7.50 per hole.
Choosing a Suitable Base
Whilst we do not sell bases or legs directly, we have a number of suggestions for creating a suitable base for your desk.
Use sections of wooden worktops as supports: our fabrication team can cut a worktop into thinner wood sections that are very sturdy and can be joined to the surface with L-brackets or with the assistance of a 45° mitre join.
Sit a worktop on top of wooden kitchen cabinets: our sister company SolidWoodKitchenCabinets.co.uk is a supplier of oak base cabinets that are available in a variety of combinations. Choose from multiple drawers, doors or open cabinetry to store your computer or other office equipment in.
Purchase table legs or trestles: a number of companies offer table legs or trestles in a wide range of designs. Make sure that whichever option you choose comfortably supports the weight of a solid wood worktop, as well as any additional weight you may add with monitors, printers and other office accessories.
