Whilst wood is generally a hard wearing material benefitting from the ability to sand down any scratches, it does involve a lot of maintenance.
To keep it looking its best, wooden worktops require oiling every 6 months. It is also prone to scorching if a hot pan is placed directly onto the surface.
Wooden worktops can be used in both contemporary kitchens and more traditional settings.
They are great for other work surfaces too; such as breakfast bars, butchers blocks or end grain chopping boards.
