Solid European Oak Worktops - FSC Certified

Quercus Robur

Known for its strength, European Oak has been used for generations due to it being one of the hardest and most durable timbers available. This isn’t really a surprise when you consider that the Latin name Quercus robur literally means strength.

European Oak is a firm favourite with our customers when they come to us looking for kitchen worktops. Often for the wood’s natural strength and its beautiful rich golden colour. It’s timeless style is characterised by its distinct and often wide, dark and light brown growth rings.

In the UK, we’re used to seeing the image of an Oak tree used as a national symbol. With it being the most common woodland tree in England, it appears in the history books regularly – from being known as the Royal Oak due to the oak tree at Boscobel House where Charles II hid in 1650, to being used for boatbuilding for thousands of years until the mid 19th century, it now has a quieter life being used for interior and furniture work.

Resourcing our wood carefully

All of the wood that we use has FSC certification. This means that we can trace the origin of the wood from the forest to your finished worktop. This ensures the quality of the wood itself and on a wider scale, we know that as a business, we are working ethically with social and environmental benefits.

European Oak Worktop Grades

Unlike many online retailers, we offer a comprehensive choice of grades, so that you can design your perfect worktop.

Character Grade

Our character worktops are visually striking and contain natural colour variations between the staves.

The wood can contain small knots, some of which may have been filled with a suitably coloured wood filler. You may find that there are more variations in the grain patterns with this grade.

Nature Grade

No tree is the same and our nature grade worktops reflect this.

The wood can contain small knots, some of which may have been filled with a suitably coloured wood filler. Some of these knots may have some of the natural variation of colour and grain that occurs within that particular wood.

Prime Grade

Our prime grade worktops have a more uniform colour and appearance than our Character Grade Worktops.

As a general rule, they do not have knots and have a straighter and more consistent grain pattern. This is a popular option for use in a modern, contemporary kitchen.
