Our full stave oak worktops are simply stunning. As the name suggests, this range is constructed from planks of timber that run the length of the worktop; with beautiful and unique accentuation of the natural figuring due to the fuller, 90mm wide staves. For real rustic appeal, each wide stave oak worktop is manufactured from timber that is specifically selected for its prominent grain pattern, natural features and colour variation. If you would prefer a range of oak worktops (full stave construction) with greater colour consistency, then please view our full stave prime oak worktops.
Our best-selling collection has been honed with precision from only the finest-quality raw material, producing worktops of incomparable resilience, beauty and durability. Constructed from high-pressure glued, 90mm wide staves, Worktop Express® provide A grade oak plank worktops square-edged and fully sanded to a silky smooth finish (150 grit) but otherwise unfinished. As such, you are able to treat your worktops as preferred before installation. We are proud to sell these affordable wood worktops directly to the public, saving customers more than 75% off high-street kitchen prices. Rapid delivery within the UK and a high-quality, great-value product are guaranteed.
The aesthetic appeal of European oak is incomparable, and our full stave worktops really are something special: these surfaces only grow more spectacular as time passes. Elegant yet inviting, single stave oak worktops make a fantastic addition to any space and will provide years of faithful service.
Worktop Express® - The UK's leading online solid wood worktop specialist
We are proud to employ a strong environmental policy, manufacturing kitchen worktops from sustainably-sourced European timber. For more detailed information about our traditional plank oak worktops, please visit our environmental page.
We are delighted to announce an expansion of our full stave oak range, due to high demand for this item. We now stock two different formats of the full stave option - a version with a 40mm stave width, plus the existing version with larger 90mm staves. Both forms utilise staves that run the full length of the top.
We highly recommend considering our 40mm full stave option: this worktop tends to boast a more uniform appearance throughout as the staves are easier to colour match, whilst offering the 'unbroken' feel of our original full stave worktops. Please consult our 40mm full stave oak range below for an idea of sizes and prices.
However, if you would prefer a more opulent accentuation of the timber's natural features, we advise purchasing our 90mm wide stave option. Please view our 90mm full stave oak range below for more information on the sizes and prices available.

Worktop Express® is a distribution company in the truest sense of the word; and cost-effectiveness is built into our business model.
With Worktop Express there is simply no middleman: we even operate our own in-house 2Man delivery service to maximise efficiency. When you choose Worktop Express, you are choosing a group of specialists who devote their expert attention to every step of the process and are single-handedly responsible for sourcing, stocking, marketing, and distributing the product. Ensuring that we are the only link between the customer and manufacturer allows us to offer the most up-to-date products in the market for lower prices than any other retailer.
Our large stock holding - over 15,000 worktops are held in stock at any time across various locations - and sheer purchasing power dictates that the prices we can provide direct to the public and trade are extremely competitive. We do not share the same overheads as high-street stores (on average an initial 270% markup tends to be applied just to cover warehousing and staff costs) and therefore can achieve similar profit margins - but without overcharging customers! Our direct internet delivery model and advanced stock ordering allows us to minimise costs.
We have five strategically-placed depots throughout the UK, all of which are serviced by an impressive fleet of in-house delivery vehicles. As a result, we are able to offer an unparalleled delivery service: cost-effective, consistent, and prompt.
The belief that superb quality can go hand-in-hand with affordability is a lynchpin of the Worktop Express ethos. As a result we are confident that the Worktop Express product range far outstrips the quality of anything you will find on the high street - and often at a fraction of the cost.
