Worktop Express Blog > Top 5 Wooden Accessories for Your Solid Wood Kitchen Workbenches

We’re a little infatuated with wood – there’s no denying it. Anything that makes creative use of this wondrous natural material has our interest.

This is the first in our new series of ‘Top 5s’, blogs in which we’ll explore wooden products in a variety of markets. We’re kicking off with five favourite wooden kitchen accessories that complement our wide range of solid wood kitchen workbenches.

At number 5: The Typhoon Hachoir Set

Crushing coriander? Taking it to thyme? This hachoir set makes easy work of herbs and spices thanks to a double-blade stainless steel mezzaluna.

The hollowed chopping board is made from sustainable sources of beech and is naturally oiled (just like our solid wood worktops!). Not only is it a great addition to any chef’s arsenal, but it looks great in a kitchen and is excellent value at just £11 from Select Homeware.

Our number 4: Oak Pestle & Mortar

This chunky pestle and mortar is made from rather attractive American oak and looks more than good enough to earn a permanent position on your kitchen worktop.

Release the flavours from garlic, ginger, chilli or any number of herbs and spices to make your own pastes and dressings.

Only £39 from Jamie’s ‘At Home’ kitchenware site.

In at number 3: Tuscany Drop Front Bread Bin

Store your bread in style with this beautiful drop front bread bin from T&G woodware – crafted from Australian acacia wood that goes really well with our walnut worktops.

A chrome handle finishes the bread bin with a touch of style, and allows for easy access to your fresh bread.

Available from Artisanti for a very reasonable £34.

At number 4: The Wine-Stem Rack

Well, we got this far without resorting to drink, but we’re not making any excuses for including this rather elegant wooden wine-rack in this Top 5.

Also made from Australian acacia, this space-saving rack is designed to be wall-mounted and stores 6 bottles of your beverage of choice, along with 6 wine glasses that are cleverly held by their stems underneath.

Head over to Crate & Barrell to snap one up for £39.

And our number 1: The Provenance Reuseful Cookbook Stand

When we stumbled across this ingenious cookbook stand, it was an easy decision to give it the top spot in our wooden kitchen accessories top 5.

Manufactured entirely from recycled teak, it’s been designed to fold up and just look like a wooden book. It’ll sit right next to the rest of your cookbooks and unfolds into a handy stand that will hold your cookbook of choice – or if you’re really modern – a tablet PC.

Provenance will sell you one directly for just £35.

So there you have it – wood not only makes beautiful worktops, but some rather gorgeous kitchen accessories too. Whilst we haven’t yet branched out in to a full range of accessories for your kitchen, our solid oak chopping boards have been incredibly popular. They’re available for just £20 and are supplied fully sanded and oiled with a pencil edge profile.
