What worktop fabrication services do you offer? Question of the Week 04/10/2014
‘What worktop fabrication services do you offer?’
The first ‘Question of the Week’ this October is from Aasif in Kidderminster, who is looking at ordering some of our kitchen countertops, but would like to know what fabrications services we can offer.
“I want to order kitchen countertops from you but can you tell me what fabrication options you offer?”
Thanks for getting in touch. If you’re looking for a wooden worktop with any kind of bespoke alterations then you have definitely come to the right people.
We offer a full in-house fabrication service, and can make almost any alteration to wooden worktops that you may ever need. Our fabrication team use a specialised CNC machine and a range of tools to create whatever alterations you require for worktops to fit into your dream kitchen design.
Here’s a rundown of some of the most popular fabrication services we can offer:
Pre-Oiling: As standard, our worktops are provided unfinished, but if you wish, we can coat your worktops with HABiol Oil to provide a hard-wearing finish. Prices start at £10 per metre.
Drainage Grooves – If you are using wooden worktops around a sink, then consider opting for routed drainage grooves to add the perfect finishing touch. They can be cut in either a straight, fan or fountain arrangement, and will ensure that water from hand-washed items quickly drains away rather than sitting on the worktop surface. Prices start at £45 for a set of six.
End Caps: To finish the exposed end of a worktop, or protect worktops from the heat of appliances such as ovens, consider requesting end caps. Endcaps are created by affixing an extra stave to the end of worktop that runs its entire width, and as well as providing protection from heat, also gives a more ‘finished’ look than leaving the end open. Prices start at £35 for a 40mm end cap.
Radius Corners: To provide a smooth corner to any worktop, consider a radius corner cut. It removes a sharp corner to create a softer and safer worktop, and is an ideal way to finish an island or breakfast bar counter. With our bespoke service, you can choose the size of the radius corner that will suit your kitchen. Prices start from £20 per corner.
Edge Profiles: To provide a softer finish, or an extra level of design detail to a solid wood kitchen, consider requesting an edge profile on your worktop. We offer a wide variety of different finishes, from a smooth pencil top to a detailed ‘ogee’ profile. Prices start at £5 per metre.
As well as these popular fabrication services, we offer a large selection of other services, which can be tailored to your exact requirements. If there’s something you think would finish the worktop perfectly in your new kitchen, then don’t hesitate to get in touch – our team will endeavour to cater for any kind of bespoke request.
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
All the best,
Ben @ Worktop Express
