Worktop Irregular Cut Out
We offer the irregular cut out service for any cut-to-size measurements that cannot be completed by our Homag saw, along with anything that needs to be cut by hand including chamfered corners, cut outs for pillars or posts and taper cuts.
Chamfered corners are listed as part of our edge profiling service but require the irregular cut out process. For a chamfered corner, the edge of the worktop is sanded to create a linear look, often chosen to allow for a more complete, smooth finish.
A taper cut is applied at an angle so that one end of the worktop becomes wider than the other. To help our team when they are creating a CAD drawing of your order and cutting your worktop, you need to supply us with the length of your timber and the size of angle you require it to be cut to.
When providing such information, the customer must ensure that dimensions and the location of the cut out are as exact as possible so that our team can complete the order with precision. This ensures that no problems arise during the measuring and placement of the required cut outs.
Our pre-oiling service is mandatory when you choose our worktop fabrication service. Freshly cut timber becomes susceptible to changes in air temperate, moisture and humidity, so it is important that timber is sealed shortly after cutting to prevent this from occurring.
Please note: even though we pre-oil your worktop ready for installation, please view our worktop installation guide for details recommended oiling procedure and general maintenance tips for your worktop.
Upon fixing your worktop, the irregular cut out will not be visible as the worktop should blend seamlessly with the item(s) it has been cut to accommodate. For your convenience, the offcuts from your irregular cut out are also despatched with the rest of your order.
Irregular cut outs are available at the fantastic price of just £20.00 each. Resultant offcuts are free of charge.
