Every month we have some fantastic fabrication going on in our Gloucester warehouse, and May has been no exception. Our fabrication team have been tasked with some rather unusual bespoke wood worktops, and here’s our pick of the bunch:
IrokoThe bronze hues of iroko worktops mean that they never fail to be amongst our favourites here at Worktop Express®. The recent launch of a new collection of Deluxe iroko worktops has coincided with a surge in demand for this timber – and it’s not hard to see why when we take a look at this stunning specimen! The customer requested an unusual shaped cut-out right in the centre of this worktop that’s for a four-in-a-row hob – something we rarely see. For precision, it was cut with our CNC machine, then finished by hand to ensure that every millimetre of the edge was honed to a beautifully smooth and even finish.
There’s little we enjoy more than seeing a truly unique worktop design, and this customer’s breakfast bar is no exception. After biscuit-joining two of our 620mm oak worktops together to create this extra wide surface, we were able to fashion a beautifully large ellipse end that smoothly rolls out in to two internal ellipses, finishing in a flat end to mount the worktop up against a wall. We love the mixture of grain patterns in this piece, and can happily imagine chowing down on some eggs and bacon around it (or perhaps something a little more civilised…).
Whether your kitchen has some rather unusual shaped walls, or obstacles that stop a standard rectangular worktop from being installed, we’re able to customise our worktops to any requirements – that’s the beauty of wood. This lovely example of a beech worktop was made to snuggle up against an unusual wall, but was no struggle for our fabrication team to get spot-on. After making the irregular cut, a single radius corner was also cut, and then a pencil edge profile applied to both the top and the bottom of the worktop.
And there you have it – May’s finest fabrications are a sight to behold and full commendation must go to our skilled fabrication team who continue to manufacture some truly fantastic bespoke worktops from timber of the highest quality.If you’re one of the lucky customers to have one of our customised worktops in your kitchen, we’d love to see some photos!
