We’re feeling especially fond of Prime Oak this month, so we thought it deserved a bit of special attention. Don’t tell the other worktops though, they’ll only be jealous…
Oak is one of the most popular worktop materials ever – and it’s been utilised for lots of other things, too, from ship-building to furniture to drums! Its natural qualities make it incredibly useful: with an average density of 0.75 g/cm3, it’s both durable and strong, and the timber’s high tannin content provides fierce protection against environmental factors (fungus or woodworm, for example).
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, oak is simply gorgeous to look at. And we mean that in all forms – the timber is blessed with a uniformly attractive grain pattern so whether you go for an oak worktop or our Prime Oak variant is a matter of taste. That said, Prime Oak offers something special in terms of wonderfully even tone and elegant patterning: these worktops are made from solid wood staves chosen for their particularly delicate, subtle natural figuring and colour consistency. The result is a beautifully golden, warm, hard-wearing worktop – natural without being rustic, varied without losing its subtlety: a worktop to be proud of.
