Wood worktop types and styles
STANDARD 40MM STAVE WORKTOPS
These worktops are made from 40mm wide blocks with variable lengths. They are the most popular and most common type of wooden worktop because of their excellent value for money, great durability and attractive “brick pattern” design. They are produced using “finger joint” technology whereby the short ends of the blocks are connected to each other via V grooved joints. These worktops are available in almost all wood types.
Thicknesses available: 22mm, 27mm, 40mm
DELUX 80MM STAVE WORKTOPS/WIDE STAVE WORKTOPS
These worktops are made from 80mm wide blocks with variable lengths. They have similar construction and pattern to the 40mm stave worktops but the blocks/planks which are used are wider and longer. The appearance, therefore, is less “cluttered” offering the sense of more continuous grain patterns and a less “manufactured”, more natural look. They are produced using “finger joint” technology whereby the short ends of the blocks are connected to each other via V grooved joints.
These worktops are available in Oak and occasionally in some other wood types.
Thicknesses available: 40mm
FULL STAVE WORKTOPS
Full stave worktops, with wide, long planks are the most luxurious variety of wooden worktops we offer. These worktops are made from continuous planks of timber running for the full length of the worktop. These worktops offer the most natural look and feel as it gives the impression of a single piece of wood. The width of the planks we use varies between 80mm-120mm on average but could be as wide as 160mm-200mm. Full stave wooden worktops are available in most timber types with a thickness of 38mm.
In Oak and American Walnut, we also offer Full stave worktops in 27mm thickness.
Our range of full stave wooden worktops is the most extensive on the UK market in terms of variety and size availability – being offered in lengths starting at 0.6m and every foot up to 4.2m in length. This allows our customers to buy their full stave worktops with minimal wastage and also avoid joints where there are long runs of kitchen units.
As part of our extended range of full stave wooden worktops, we now offer a range of 18 thick worktops/furniture panels in American Oak.
END GRAIN OAK WORKTOPS
End grain butcher block worktops are created by fusing together the end pieces of wood staves into a checkerboard pattern. The end grain of the wood is considered the strongest and most durable part of it. It has a particularly warm look and feel, is naturally anti-bacterial and is incredibly strong and durable. These end grain tops could be used on their own or in addition to materials such as granite and quartz to soften the look of your kitchen with its unique patterns.
Our Oak butcher block worktops come in 2 standard thicknesses – 50mm and 80mm.
