Prices based on a worktop width of 650m and exlcude cutting & fabrication costs. Our wooden worktops are not available as modular products

About Wood

Wood worktops are the most long-lasting trend in kitchen design, a classic foundation of design which creates a warm and inviting atmosphere with a sense of traditional values. The beauty of wood is not just in the homely and natural tones of the material itself, but also in the alluring way that the natural graining of the wood translates into calming swirls and waves in the finished product.

Our wood finishes are carefully selected for beauty and endurance in the face of daily use, and come pre-treated with our own special blend of oils, ensuring that your worktop has a smooth, satin-like feel, and has improved resistance to staining.

 

Considerations when buying Wood

Edge details refer to the shaping work completed on the external, front facing edge of your worktop. For wooden worktops, the edge detail can vary from a flat straight edge in a square finish, to the complex detailing of the Venetian edge. Edge details are chargeable on top of your worktop cost per linear meter, and can vary depending on the level of detailing.

Available edges: 

Square - Right angled on the top and bottom edge Large Wood Single BevelSingle Bevel - Right angled on the bottom edge, with a 45 degree diagonal shaping on the top edge. Large Wood Single Pencil RoundSingle Pencil - Right angled on the bottom edge, with a small rounding on the top edge. Large Wood Double Pencil RoundDouble Pencil - Small rounding on both the top and bottom edges. Single RoundSingle Round - Right angled on the bottom edge, medium rounding on the top edge. Double RoundDouble Round - Medium rounding on both the top and bottom edges. Large Wood BullnoseBullnose - Full rounding on the front facing edge. Drip Groove - a 3mm deep, 7mm wide channel, positioned 10cm into the underside of the worktop which helps prevent spills from spreading on the underside of your worktop. Single SpanishSingle Spanish - a curved edge detail, recessed into the top front edge. Large Wood Single OvoloSingle Ovolo - a convex curved edge detail, recessed into the top front edge. Large Wood Single ImperialSingle Imperial - a convex curve which starts at the front-facing edge, and results in a recessed lip as it meets the surface. VenetianVenetian - a complex edge detail with a centre, top and front facing lip, separated by concave and convex curves

A return end could be considered to be the shaping detail of your worktop, either as a design choice, or to make your worktop fit your kitchen.

Return ends typically incur an additional cost, depending on complexity, and may affect the cost of your edge detailing depending on how this affects the front facing edge of your worktop.

Types of Return End:
Part/Full Return: A square finish
Single Radius: One rounded corner
Double Radius: Two rounded corners/ U shape
Double Notch: Square cutout at one corner
Triple Notch: Square cutout on one edge
External Splay: Split an external corner with a diagonal cut.
Internal Splay: Split an internal corner with one diagonal and one transverse cut.
Breakfront: Square cutout at two corners.
Curved: A straight edge with a curved extrusion.

Internal profile edges on all edge details other than Bevel must have a radius of at least 60mm to be machined effectively.

Upstands are typically positioned along the rear wall of your worktop, acting as a vertical continuation of your design, as well as a resistant barrier to protect your walls.

Upstands are available as standard in 40mm high by 3m lengths. It is most important that upstands are fixed to the wall and NOT to the worksurface. There should be a 3mm gap between the worksurface and upstand, the only connection between upstand and worksurface should be silicone sealant, allowing the natural movement and expansion of your worksurface.

Upstands are also available in 40mm, 80mm, 120mm, 160mm & 200mm heights. Please ask our sales team for more information.

Coved upstands are only available in 27mm thick worktops.

 

 

Cutouts are pre-fabricated sections which create space for your appliances and utilities, mainly used for sinks and hobs.

Certain rules should be observed when planning cutouts:-

 

  • Sink cut-outs should be a minimum of 50mm from the worktop front edge.
  • Aluminium foil should be applied to the edges of hob cut-outs.
  • There should be a minimum 200mm between hob cut-outs.
  • Hob cut-outs should be a minimum of 50mm from the worktop front edge.
  • Hob flange needs to sit on the aluminium foil around the cut-out, to avoid conducting too much heat into the wood and causing cracking.
  • When a worktop is to be fitted near to a Aga, Rayburn or similar allow a minimum gap of 4mm. Ideally a solid wood return should be fixed across the end grain to stop any splits occurring.

 

We supply Franke and Apollo branded stainless steel sinks, each of which can be either single, half, or paired 1.5 bowl combinations. Please contact our sales team for details of our current ranges.

Please specify whether your sink is to be setup in the left-hand or right-handed position when deciding on extras.

We will fit your sink bowl at the same time as your worktop, but please note, this must be resealed by your plumber to validate your 12 months warranty. We will not complete plumbing works during our visit so please make prior arrangements to minimise disruption.

Jointing is the process by which two sections of worktop are joined. For wood worktops, these joints will be noticeable because of the sudden change in worktop staves. 

The maximum length of any individual worktop section is 3 metres. Any length exceeding this will need a lateral joint, two sections which travel in the same direction.

Where worktops continue around corners, A Butt or Scribed corner joint will be required, and the direction of your worktops pattern will change by the same angle as the corner.

Above - a scribed corner joint.

The corner on a scribed joint as shown above meets on the inside edge with a diagonal edge, which allows the continuation of edge detailing.

Above - a Butt corner joint

By comparison, the butt corner joint connects two flat pieces with a straight edge. This saves material.

 

In kitchens where temperatures can be either very cold (do not install in an unoccupied site) or very humid then the level of maintenance required is greater, especially in the immediate days / weeks after installation. In these cases extra coats of worksurface sealant will be necessary to prevent drying out and warping.

In the immediate weeks after installation, regular maintenace is required. During this period you must use the Ultra Worksurface Sealant to prevent the wood from drying out and warping. Apply the sealant as directed. This is especially important in kitchens that are very humid or cold. Timber worksurfaces must not be installed in unoccupied premises.

Ultra Worksurface Sealant

Ultra Worksurface Sealant is ready to use straight from the tin. Please do not thin but stir thoroughly.

Ultra Worksurface Sealant should be used after a damaged area has been sanded.

Apply first coat thinly to sanded area and leave to dry over night (at least 8 – 10 hours) ensuring good ventilation.

Apply second coat to the face and all edges.

Apply one more coat to the face (3 in total) and when the final surface is thoroughly dry you can use the polishing pad to polish off the surface.

Please pay particular attention to the sink areas.

De – nib

This takes place after the second coat of Ultra Worksurface Sealant and helps to remove high spots and raised grain. 180 then 240 grit sandpaper is used to give a beautiful smooth finish. A lint free cloth or in some cases the white scotchbrite may be needed after the third coat.

Ultra Fresh

Specially formulated to freshen up and clean your worksurface, apply every 2 to 3 months, by simply sparingly spraying on your worksurface, then buffing with the lint free cloth provided.

Leaves no watermarks and is odourless when dry.

Introduction

Wood worksurfaces are crafted from solid hardwood timber staves and finger jointed in length. The wood is then butt jointed and glued together along its width and finely oiled to create a beautifully water repellent surface. Wood worksurface products have a treasured history in commercial and residential environments, whether contemporary or classic in style.

Storage

Timber worktops should be stored at room temperature away from all sources of heat and moisture prior to installation. An external room without heating, ie. A garage is not suitable and could cause warping/swelling. Please either store flat or on their longest edge as instructed on the packaging. Never prop up a worktop vertically against a wall. Ideally stored horizontally on a sound and level surface, with timber battens placed between each blank at 600mm centres maximum.

When installed in a room with an Aga, acclimatisation is needed for a few days before being fitted.

DO NOT leave in an unheated room.

Joints

Wood worksurfaces can be butt or mitre jointed dependent upon the edge detail. Mitre joints require additional support on site and require an additional length of worksurface to install.

Thermal Expansion

Wood worksurface products should ideally be kept at room temperature. In kitchens where temperatures can be either very cold (unoccupied site) or very humid, then the level of maintenance required is greater, especially in the immediate days / weeks after installation. In these cases extra coats of worksurface sealant will be necessary to prevent drying out and warping.

If an under oven, dishwasher, washingmachine or tumble dryer is to be installedunder the worksurface, a piece of aluminium foil should be adhered to the underside, with the foil face outwards. This will protect it from any intense heat or moisture. Allow a 3-4mm gap between the back edge of the worktop and the wall to allow expansion and contraction.

We don’t recommend timber wall cladding due to warping.

Overhangs and Support

Any overhang extending more than 300mm must be supported.

Hob & Sink Cut-outs

  • Sink cut-outs should be a minimum of 50mm from the worktop front edge. Aluminium foil should be applied to the edges of hob cut-outs.
  • There should be a minimum 200mm between hob cut-outs.
  • Hob cut-outs should be a minimum of 50mm from the worktop front edge.
  • Hob flange needs to sit on the aluminium foil around the cut-out, to avoid conducting too much heat into the wood and causing cracking.
  • When a worktop is to be fitted near to an Aga, Rayburn or similar allow a minimum gap of 4mm. Ideally a solid wood return should be fixed across the end grain to stop any splits occurring.

Upstands

It is important that upstands are fixed to the wall and not to the worksurface. There should be a 3mm gap between the worksurface and upstand, the only connection between upstand and worksurface should be silicone sealant, allowing natural movement of your worksurface.

Scratches

Wood worksurface products may be more prone to scratching than some other surfaces. The use of chopping boards and / or pastry mates is recommended in order to protect the surface finish.

Staining

It is important to remember not to leave wine glasses, dishes containing curry, wet copper – bottomed pans or similar items on wood worksurface products.

Repairable

Although the first few marks and scratches will stand out dramatically, hardwood has many unique qualities and with a little care and attention the passage of time can enhance its beauty. In the unfortunate event of sustaining damage, a wood worksurface maybe rubbed down and refinished, leaving it as good as new.

Stainless Steel Sinks

Please specify preferred method of undermounting Stainless Steel sinks. There should be a minimum 200mm between sink cut-outs. Drainer grooves can only be cut in the middle of staves, due to the nature of the construction of your worksurface.

If a waste disposal unit is fitted to an undermounted sink after installation, additional support will be required, otherwise your warranty may be invalidated.

Points of Note

Plastering or tiling should be completed after installation.

When fixing to the cabinets, only use slotted angle brackets to secure the worktop to the carcass. Always use washers with screws.

If a carcass has a solid top, or you can only secure through the top rail always drill an oversized hole (8 – 10mm) through the top of carcass and secure to the worksurface using a larger washer and screw. This allows the worksurface to slide over the washer in case of natural expansion or shrinkage.

Stave widths 40mm (±5) as standard. If unavailable 27mm (±1mm) Beech and Teak, 20mm (±1mm) on all other species will be supplied. Staves of an alternative thickness can be supplied but may have a longer lead time.

Random Stave Lengths
