Jointed Timber Worktops
We manufacture a wide variety of good quality, jointed timber worktops which are suitable for use when putting together tables, desks and also kitchen work surfaces. In particular, we have in our stock, panels of Scandinavian Redwood (Pine) and European Oak timber in various sizes.
Because we manufacture all the timber in our own workshops we can supply bespoke orders swiftly and at prices that are very competitive.
We can make the jointed timber worktops to suit your exact specifications in an extensive variety of different timbers and sizes. The staves are parallel-sawn, mainly in 90-150mm widths. They are then planed and edge-glued together. We then smooth them to a 120 grit wide-belt machine-sanded finish. They are left untrimmed so you can true-up on site but we wrap them carefully for delivery.
Worktop Aftercare Instructions
Wood is a natural product that can be affected by heat and humidity. It is a hygroscopic product, meaning that it can gain and lose moisture in sympathy with its environment before, during, and after installation. For example, wood expands when the humidity level is high and contracts when the humidity level drops or if it is in close proximity to excessive heat. When this occurs, it is possible for it to cause bowing or warping.
All worktops need to be stored flat immediately after delivery and on top of battens or supports and not directly on the floor surface. Each worktop should be separated by similarly spaced (inline) battens during storage. The storage area needs to be indoors, with a stable humidity, and somewhere that the worktops will not be subject to extreme temperatures.
We recommend that you do not unpackage worktops unless:
- The room humidity is stable – no more than 45% (cheap humidity meters are readily available from garden centres or similar shops).
- All building dust and debris has been cleaned and cleared.
- All wet trades are finished, and a sufficient period of time has been allowed for natural drying.
- Fresh plasterwork has been allowed to dry for a minimum of six weeks, or until the plaster is dry throughout.
We recommend using Osmo Top Oil, which comes in a matt or satin finish. The worktops must be coated on all faces, edges, and ends to effectively seal the worktop from variations in humidity. Click Here for more details on Osmo Top Oil.
