As another month passes, many more magnificent custom kitchen worktops pass through the hands of our incredibly skilled fabrication team. This month they have created in excess of 750 bespoke wood and laminate worktops for kitchens around the country, and so here on the blog we have picked three of the finest for your delectation.

Full Stave Black American Walnut

This full stave black American walnut worktop is now part of an L-shaped kitchen

Our full stave black American walnut worktops are one of our most luxurious dark wood worktops. They have an elegant grain and rich colouration that is only accentuated further in full stave examples such as this.

This worktop was given a number of fabrications by our team, including a sink cut-out with matching tap hole and another circular cut-out to accommodate a pop-up plug socket. We also routed worktop connector bolt recesses onto the underside of the worktop, allowing it to connect easily to the accompanying surface. Finally, the worktop was given multiple coats of oil to protect it in transit and prior to installation.

Full Stave Sapele

Full stave sapele worktops have a beautiful rosy hue and are a great alternative to iroko.

Full stave sapele is one of the more recent additions to our collection, and is similar in appearance to iroko, but with a more rosy tint that is especially evident in these extra-wide full-length staves.

This particular worktop has been cut to accommodate a large double bowl undermounted sink, with a complimentary tap hole drilled adjacent to the aperture. At one end of the surface, worktop connector bolt recesses have been cut into the underside to accommodate the specialist bolts that are used to joint two worktops together at a 90° angle.

Granite Laminate Winter Carnival

This Winter Carnival worktop replicates the look of real granite, yet is affordable and easy to install.

Bespoke laminate worktops are becoming an increasingly common site in our worktop fabrication facility. This granite laminate worktop has a décor known as ‘Winter Carnival’, and is a beautiful imitation of real stone. One of our AEON™ Enhanced Performance Laminate worktops, this surface has a unique Mirage finish that is three to five times more hard-wearing than a standard laminate surface

This particular example was cut to accommodate a mason’s mitre joint, and features a cut-out to accommodate a wide oven hob, too.

No matter what your requirements may be – whether you would like a cut-out for a sinks or hob, an edge profile applied, or almost any other bespoke alteration you can think of – our fabrication team can assist. With the latest in CNC and finishing machinery, our skilled team can create all manner of bespoke worktops. If you would like to see further examples of previously fabricated worktops, then take a look at our Fabrication Gallery and browse through hundreds of excellent examples.
