Solid oak worktops are a stylish and practical choice for a variety of different kitchen settings. These engineered full stave prime oak worktops are created using a solid oak core with a layer of full stave oak veneer applied to the top, bottom, and both long edges of the kitchen surface, creating the appearance of a solid full stave oak worktop. The oak veneer is cut from the same piece of timber, which provides an attractive, uniform look - thus allowing us to offer a luxurious finish at a much lower cost.
We work hard to ensure all of the timber we use is sustainably and responsibly sourced, and are proud to say that our oak is sourced from Europe. These engineered prime oak worktops are incredibly environmentally friendly and promote an ethos of minimal wastage. For example, the solid oak core comprises smaller staves with an uneven tone or grain pattern that make it unsuitable for use as a standalone worktop. Using the same piece of timber to create the 0.5mm thick solid oak veneer that is applied to each face of the worktop reduces waste, whilst creating an aesthetically-pleasing product with a more uniform grain pattern and even tone.
Worktop Express® - The UK's leading online solid wood worktop specialist
Our engineered oak worktops are finished to the same high standards as the other timbers in our selection. The surface is sanded to 150 grit smoothness, ready for the application of oil or treatment of choice. Offering exceptionally high quality at an affordable price, these worktops will need to be oiled to provide adequate protection and to help them mature to a beautiful golden hue over time. Much like the other wood species in our collection, these stunning oak worktops require only a small amount of maintenance to ensure they can be enjoyed for years to come.

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.
