At the start of each new month we like to take a little time to look back over the previous month’s work, praise our team and give some more insight into the fantastic fabrication service we provide. We have many a beautiful solid worktop surface this month, and choosing just three was difficult. But – without further ado – here are November’s top picks:
First up, we have a caramel bamboo worktop. We just had to include this delightful timber; not only because so many enjoyed the fantastic sale we ran throughout November, but also because it looks simply wonderful, too! Bamboo is pretty incredible; naturally hygienic and one of the most sustainable materials in the world, it certainly deserves a place in this month’s top three. The sporadically placed nodes that connect this plant’s individual sections together takes the ‘natural look’ to a whole new level, something that just can’t be replicated by any other material. Some skilled fabrication techniques have been demonstrated in the pictured bespoke piece, too; notice the irregular cut out to the back of the worktop, accurately executed by our in-house team to accommodate the customer’s requirements. The hob and two sink cut outs have been perfectly and smoothly routed, completing the worktop so it is ready for installation.
Next, we’d like to discuss a stunning piece of deluxe walnut. Deluxe walnut is a worktop unique to us here at Worktop Express®: the staves are wider than our standard range (approximately 90mm), which allows the timber’s natural beauty to radiate through. This is a deceptively simple but valuable piece of fabrication work – the undermount sink is accompanied by two conveniently positioned tap holes, ready to begin use! An additional hole has also been cut into the timber at the customer’s request. Finally, a radius corner has been applied, softening any harsh edges and giving the worktop a complete look.
Last, but certainly not least, we’ve chosen a wonderful example of full stave zebrano. Sourced all the way from Africa, this is a truly exquisite choice. The timber is blessed with golden toffee staves that run the full length of the timber, intertwined with exotic dark brown grains to give a delicately ‘striped’ effect. This bespoke order has had two pieces biscuit-joined together to create a wider solid wood worktop, with irregular cuts to fit the customer’s supplied dimensions.
These pieces are just a taster of what our fabulous fabrication department can achieve! For more information regarding this service, please visit our bespoke cutting page or contact one of our friendly sales team.
