Our exquisite woodenupstands would make a grand addition to any kitchen. There are two different styles that we offer, Wide Block and Super Stave. The wide block possesses joints along the timber which is as magnificent as our wide block wooden worktops. Super Stave up stands consists of a continuous length and no joints, this outstanding style can easily be complimented with a super stave or traditional plank wooden worktop. The idea of an upstand is to improve the view between the join from the worktop to the wall. Walls are not always straight or up to standard, so an upstand can easily make it more appealing and fix any visible problems.

You may have a concern of wanting to join two or more worktops together. At Norfolk Oak we have supply custom Butt joints; this is where there is a small incision is made into the bottom of the worktops. Then a clamp is then inserted into both incisions to keep them together. We recommend using a 90 degree butt join. Having butt joins secures your worktops together and creates a greater bond than if you were to use glue.
