Ordering Bespoke Cuts for Your Wooden Worktop Online: A Nutshell Guide
Our handy Online Bespoke Worktop Tool provides a quick, easy way to order a wooden worktop with customisation. Not only does it allow you to visualise your bespoke worktop and detail the cost break-down, but it is also more affordable: customisations ordered via the tool are offered at a discount. By placing an order for your tailor-made worktop using our innovative online tool, you can design your worktop at any hour that is convenient and take as much time as you need.
The Worktop Express® Online Bespoke Worktop Tool offers a whole host of choices when it comes to tailoring your solid wood worktop. Read on to learn more about each option:
- A cut-to-size cuts down worktops from our standard sizes.
- Select whether you would like to cut lengthways or widthways, then the amount you would like to remove (in mm).
- You may also wish to opt to use the offcut as another worktop (if so, you can switch between worktops using the tabs in the top-left corner of your screen).
- A radius corner cuts our default right-angled corners into a smooth, curved corner.
- Enter the radius required (in mm) and switch the corner(s) you would like to apply the cut to.
- Please read our Radius Corners Nutshell Guide for further information.
Square or Circle Cut-Out
- To accommodate certain worktop equipment, appliances or accessories, you might like to add a square or circle cut-out.
- Simply specify the distance from the left side and distance from the top of the worktop, and the width and length – or diameter – of the cut-out itself.
- A taper cut allows you to make one end of your worktop narrower than the other (accommodating irregularly-shaped kitchens, for example).
- Choose the side that you would like the cut applied to, then the corner that you would like to remain as is. The other corner on your selected side will be cut back by the amount you specify, with a diagonal cut between the two corners.
- The sink cut-out adds a hole to accommodate a sink.
- Choose which type of sink you would like: Belfast, undermounted or overmounted.
- Specify the position, length and width of your cut-out.
- Add a tap hole by specifying the distance from the left edge of the worktop and the distance from the top edge (in mm). Indicate what the diameter of your tap hole will be.
- To add a rectangular or circular hob cut-out, specify the shape that you require, its position from the left edge and top edge of the worktop, and what length and width – or diameter – is needed.
Hotrods and Cut-Out
- To add stainless steel hotrods to your worktop, grooves will need to be added to the work surface.
- These are available in a straight or diamond formation.
- Select the hotrod formation that you would like, and confirm your choice.
- You can then drag the hotrods to the position you would like on your worktop, using the navigation markers to rotate if you wish.
- To find out more, read our Stainless Steel Hotrods information guide.
Wireless Charger Hole
- Our wireless charging unit can be installed on the underside of the worktop, allowing you to charge your phone simply by placing it above the charger on the work surface.
- Indicate where you would like the charger to be positioned, and drag it to adjust its location, if required.
- For a curved end to your worktop, select the end that you would like the ellipse cut applied to, and how far back into the worktop you would like the curve to finish.
- Why not read our Ellipse End Nutshell Guide to find out more?
- We offer a wide variety of edge profiles as alternatives to our standard square edges.
- Choose between a pencil, rounded, chamfered or ogee profile, and pick whether it is applied to the top edge, bottom edge, or both.
- Then, simply select the edges that you would like this profile applied to.
- For more information, please read our Edge Profiles Nutshell Guide.
- End caps protect the wood grain from sources of heat or moisture, such as ovens or dishwashers.
- An end cap adds an additional length of 40mm to your worktop, so you may need to cut the worktop down first in order to accommodate this.
- Select the side that requires an end cap, then confirm.
- To find out more about the benefits of end caps, take a look at our useful End Caps information guide.
- Butt joins connect two worktops together at a 90° angle, and require three bolt apertures.
- To add a butt join, select its location from the choices on the right-hand menu, and confirm.
- Please note: a butt join cut should be added to both of the worktops you intend to join.
