Worktop Express Blog > August’s Fabrication Top Picks: This Month’s Top Three Bespoke Solid Wood Worktops

Never the types to rest on their laurels, our fantastic fabrication team have been hard at work this month, producing all manner of beautiful bespoke solid wood worktops. From Belfast sink cut-outs to unusual, irregular cuts to breakfast bar worktops, our team carefully craft countertops to meet a wide range of customer requests.

Whilst some of the made-to-measure work surfaces that we have seen this week have been ordered by telephone, we have also received numerous bespoke worktop orders via our handy Online Bespoke Worktop Tool. Savvy shoppers have taken advantage of this easy-to-use tool in order to receive 10% off the cost of our cutting service. If you haven’t tried it out yet, why not give the Bespoke Tool a go today? In the meantime, here are three of our favourite custom worktops from August:

European Walnut

European walnut worktops are noted for their beautiful coloration.

Gorgeous European walnut worktops are highly distinctive. Noted for their eye-catching colour variation, the wooden staves are created using timber taken from the pale sapwood and darker heartwood of the walnut tree.

For this worktop, a large sink cut-out has been made to create space for one of our magnificent inset kitchen sinks from Rangemaster®. Our skilled fabrication team have also added a radius corner, which is a smart choice for high-traffic areas of the kitchen (softening square corners with a curved edge). All of our made-to-measure worktops are given three coats of protective wood oil, providing freshly-cut edges with added protection against changes in room temperature.


Solid beech worktops have a warm, pink hue and look fantastic in modern kitchens.

Beech countertops are a popular choice for modern kitchens. This warm-hued timber has a slightly pink tint, giving the surface a warm and appealing impression. Beech wood has a remarkable grain pattern: the fine speckles – for example – are highly celebrated, and imbue the timber with a charming sense of individuality. A robust surface that is both decorative and hard-wearing, beech is the worktop of choice for many of our customers.

This bespoke worktop comes with a Belfast sink cut-out that has been designed to accommodate the outstanding double-bowl Belfast sink from RAK. These made-to-measure worktop cuts are provided with a profiled top edge (unless otherwise requested), to allow surface water to drain easily into the basin. Due to being made individually from natural materials, ceramic sinks have a +/-5mm tolerance. As such, each template used to create a Belfast sink cut-out is made individually, so that we can guarantee a precise cut to suit the unique dimensions of your sink.

Deluxe Iroko

Purchase Deluxe Iroko work surfaces for a worktop that is hard-wearing, highly hygienic and incredibly impressive.

Deluxe Iroko is an impressive timber choice, incorporating rich coloration and magnificent 90mm-wide staves. A sought-after timber with warm chestnut coloration and a naturally-high oil content, iroko is an ideal choice for kitchen worktops: the wood is both hygienic and extremely attractive.

This Deluxe Iroko worktop has been designed for an island unit and is sure to make a beautiful kitchen centrepiece. Our skilled fabrication team have added an aperture for an electric hob; you will note the angular inside corners, which have be cut square to ensure the cut-out fits securely around the appliance. Many of our customers like to incorporate a hob or sink within their kitchen island so that they can create an efficient space in which to cook, an addition which adheres to the principles of the Kitchen Work Triangle (a concept which never ceases to be popular when it comes to kitchen design).
