Designed and handcrafted at our workshop in Plumpton Green, Sussex, this bespoke set of resin-enhanced oak surfaces adds a touch of contemporary ambience to a charming cottage in Ansty. The service was extended to delivery and professional fitting by request, with cut-outs for the sink and hob being made on-site following numerous measurements to maintain accuracy and aesthetic appeal. Our creative customer was also supplied with off-cuts for personal use that would make stunning cheese and bread boards in sync with the theme of our tops. The hob cut-outs were enriched with our exclusive technique of bark preservation, which immerses the bark in a translucent blanket of resin. All timber used for this project was kiln-dried to below 10% moisture content using our on-site vacuum kiln, thus ensuring maximum stability.
The full stave oak table-tops were treated with clear epoxy resin to enhance the earthy attributes, preserve their natural beauty and guarantee hygienic use. Accompanying the worktops are matching live-edge shelves featuring transparent resin inserts to match the design of the worktops. Shelves are an effective and efficient method of attaining extra storage room, and our customer cleverly chose to incorporate them into her bathroom and dining area where space was running a little tight. The luminous warmth of the solid oak tops combines beautifully with radiance of the brass handles to create a sense of harmony throughout the cottage. All surfaces were treated with a natural blend of fragrant oils to intensify the colour palette and provide protection.
