Solid Timber Kitchen Benchtops
Fab Slabs Kitchen Bench tops
Over the years Fab Slabs Timber has made hundreds of kitchen bench tops for many happy customers. Made from kiln dried hardwood and finished with Norglass marine grade satin polyurethane, our timber bench tops are not only extremely hardwearing and durable; they also look great and can be made suit your kitchen, your colour scheme and your taste.
How does it work?
Just give us some approximate sizes of your kitchen via email or phone and we can give you an indication of price. From there we can work with you and or the cabinetmaker to choose the right timber for the job based on durability and colour, and then handcraft the bench top to make the bench top a perfect fit.
What about freight?
This is a service we organise for you. We have shipped kitchen bench tops all over the world and regularly send bench tops throughout Australia. In most cases the bench tops are bubble wrapped and placed inside a specially made box for protection. Because we send a lot of freight Australia wide we get some very reasonable rates on freight so just ask us for a price.
What about sinks and stove tops?
* Option 1 - We recommend that the sink and stove tops are cut in by us before we spray on the three generous coats of marine grade polyurethane. This helps to seal all surfaces and provide protection to all areas of the kitchen bench top. To get the size and shape of the stove top and sink correct, we get a template from you (this can be sent in the post) and then a location of where the cut out will go. Really it's quite simple and we ask the right questions to make sure we get it right.
* Option 2 The sink and stove top cut out can be done after the kitchen bench tops are installed. In this case, we send you some touch up lacquer so that you can easily seal the bare timber before installing the sink or stove top.
What timber is best for me?
The choice is easy. All our timber is the same price so all you have to do is choose the colour you like. We can recommend timbers that are more durable than others and send you photos or timber samples to help you make your decision. The most important thing is to choose timber that is kiln dried. All Fab Slabs timber has been kiln dried.
How long does it take to make a kitchen benchtop?
From start to finish it takes about 2 weeks to manufacture a bench top. A lot of this time is the lacquering process. We then like to leave the bench tops at least a week prior to sending or delivery to allow the lacquer time to really harden up. As we are always busy we recommend you give us as much notice as possible.
