What is the best timber for wooden worktop?

Wooden worktops crafted from home-grown hardwood such as oak, walnut or ash are ideal. They are very different from the much softer, lighter and uniform American wood species.

Whilst English and European timber is notable for its earthy® colour variation and beautiful wood grain, it is also denser and harder and grows much more slowly due to a much cooler and harsh weather climate.

Because of this solid wood worktops from European and English trees better withstands dents and marking.

Live Edge Wooden Worktops Treatment

Ultimately we finish our square and live edge wooden worktops by sanding them to a fine grit and providing a treatment as well as sanding in between layers of protective treatment in preparation for your immediate use. We provide two types of treatment, these being:

Live Edge Wood Worktops in Lacquer Finish

Lacquer is an ideal finish for a live edge wood worktop that is frequently exposed to moisture such as kitchens, bathrooms or utility rooms. Using a lacquer finish on a live edge solid oak or walnut worktop is most cost effective as it is durable, water resistant, protective, low maintenance and will last years without reapplication (Unless heavily used).

Unlike oil, which intensifies the colour palette, lacquer maintains the original earthy® colours of the timber worktop with a transparent preservative layer. We use a water based, low VOC solution that offers high resistance to scratches and stains. Lacquer also allows a non-yellowing, UV protection feature. Overall this finish is ideal for those wishing to preserve the original natural earthy® tones of our English oak and walnut hardwood worktops.

Live Edge Wood Worktops in Oil Finish

Finishing oil is the most organic form of treatment for solid wood worktops. Live edge wooden worktop in oil finish has one specific characteristic that lacquer doesn’t.  Oil finish enhances the wood grain and amplifies the rich, organic, natural colours of your beautiful waney edge wood kitchen island  or walnut breakfast bar whilst keeping it fully nourished.

Unlike lacquer, it also deeply penetrates the deeper fibres of your bespoke solid wood worktop to create multiple layers of protection. Oil finished  wooden counter tops are easy to repair with another layer of oil, however, this finish will require systematic re-oiling as per our maintenance guide.

We use the highest quality oils that are water, heat, alcohol and food acid resistant for our wooden worktops, however, we recommend to still take care when placing cups, glasses and hot plates on our earthy®  live edge solid wood worktops.

Beautiful Solid Wood natural earthy oak worktop


We use a high quality clear resin to fill any rustic knots and gaps, enhance the open wood grain and ensure our oak and walnut solid wood live edge worktops are hygienic for use. The resin infill is a specialist technique from our sister company Earthy® Timber that lets us show off the beauty and natural imperfections such as the open wood knots, scatterings of pip, and voids of each timber worktop and create a unique and much-loved ‘frozen nature’ feature to your home.

Our solid wood oak and walnut worktops are true show stoppers and by far our best sellers due to the unique beauty of the featured natural swirls, in-grown bark, knots and cracks naturally found within the wood.


Our beautiful, bespoke solid wood worktops can be complemented with a variety of our other distinctive wooden counter tops and furniture to assist you in creating the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams.
