We urge you to compare our samples to other companies. You will really see the difference versus lesser quality alternatives, when you buy top grade, properly selected and colour matched North American White Oak. The small difference in price really does create a huge leap in quality, which is why we exclusively use North American White Oak for all our solid Oak worktops.
With a range of different styles to choose from, you can be sure to find an Oak worktop that meets both your desired style and budget.
About Our Oak
American White Oak is the most desirable of all the Oaks, even English Oak. Delicate grain patterns, lighter, consistent colours and incredible strength are the hallmarks of American White Oak, the finest examples of which come from the Northern Appalachian Mountain region of New England, particularly Vermont and New Hampshire.
An Oak worktop is brilliant where you need some light reflecting back from the surface, or just prefer a lighter colour to say Walnut. Around 60 percent of the wooden worktops we supply for clients are Oak worktops, and when you look closely at an oiled sample it’s easy to see why. Sunlight almost brings American White Oak to life, making it almost magnetic to human hands. This beauty is apparent in all our Oak worktops, but in none more so than our Wide Block Oak worktops. With staves averaging 70 mm wide and varying in length from 120 mm to over 1200 mm, the quality of the timber is immediately obvious.
Oak worktops go extremely well with a whole variety of kitchen units, contemporary and classic, making it one of the most versatile worktops of all. Our Oak wooden worktops mellow gently over time – after initial oiling the colour and shade will not really change much, other than taking a slightly softer patina, a characteristic of most natural materials. Thanks to its extremely dense grain, an American White Oak worktop will last for centuries if properly maintained.
As standard our worktops are supplied sanded ready to oil with square edges. Please see our Bespoke Worktop Service page for information regarding our bespoke worktop services.
Our workshops can make up an Oak wooden worktop to almost any size and shape. We have made Oak worktops over 6 metres long and over 2 metres wide. As well as all manner of sink cut outs, corners, curves, drop downs, mitre cuts and finishing detail, we can also oil the wooden worktops so they are ready for immediate installation. We are happy to do as much, or as little work as you would like us to do.
White Oak is fine around under mounted sinks once properly oiled. If you are cutting the Oak worktop yourselves, make sure you use very sharp tooling indeed, and expect it to be blunt by the time you have finished.
An alternative to an oiled finish is our extremely hard wearing, low maintenance nano-coating treatment.
