The oak worktop arrived yesterday from those talented guys at Higham Furniture. They also made the units up for us which we plan to seal with acrylic sealer followed by a couple of layers of white undercoat to build up a sound surface, before finishing off with Farrow and Ball ‘Lullworth Blue’. By doing the finishing ourselves we managed to keep the cost within our budget.
Having you units made rather than out of the box may seem an expensive option but they will last a lifetime and you don’t have to buy everything at once and if you go for a traditional style then it’s unlikely to go out of fashion.
The units are made from maple ply and the doors are made from American oak, reason being we wanted a texture to the paint finish.
