Project: Bathroom countertop with basin cut-outs.
Location: London, England.
Wood: Wild walnut. Full stave, wide stave character slabs obtained from the same tree – bookmatched.
Origin: British woodlands. The timber was kiln dried to below 10% moisture content using our on-site vacuum kiln.
Features: Natural, oiled finish. Resin encapsulation, square edging, resin bark preservation, Earthy jointing system – live edge joint.
The wooden surface is immersed in a blanket of translucent epoxy resin, preserving the earthy knots and enhancing the stunning natural patterns and striations. This is also an extremely effective method of protection as the top is waterproof and water-resistant. The wide stave planks are jointed in their raw edge using our innovative Earthy joint technique, complementing the organic ambiance. Glossy copper basins and Moroccan-style tiles (in situ) gracefully merge with the diverse yet subtle colour palette of wild walnut to accentuate the elegance of the countertop. Square edging provides a sense of uniformity to this otherwise extravagant wood-art centrepiece.
