Solid Timber Kitchen Benchtops

Every bench top is handcrafted by timber slab experts using selected kiln dried local hardwoods

What’s New? – March 2013

One of our specialties here at Fab Slabs is solid timber slabs kitchen bench tops. Every bench top is handcrafted by timber slab experts using selected kiln dried local hardwoods and other timbers. The bench tops are finished with a UV rated, marine grade, heat resistant satin polyurethane. We are not a huge company mass producing standard kitchen bench tops, we are a small business where the owners of the business are hands on and oversee every project.

We have sent kitchen bench tops as far as Broome in Western Australia, Canada, Nova Scotia and Dubai. A lot of our solid timber kitchen bench tops are ordered from Sydney, Melbourne, South Australia, The Gold Coast, Western Queensland and of course here on the Sunshine Coast.

Are they expensive? Every kitchen is different and all bench tops are priced individually depending on the size of the bench tops. In most cases we are a little more expensive than laminate bench tops BUT every bench top is unique in grain and look. Solid timber bench tops provide warmth and the WOW factor to any kitchen. We have had houses renovated and then sold within days because the new buyers loved the kitchen bench tops. We are happy to give you an obligation free quote on the benchtop and we shop around to get you the best price on delivery (if needed)

Are they durable? Yes they are. Being kiln dried solid timber they will last indefinitely. In many years to come, the bench tops can be lightly sanded and re sprayed to look new again but apart from that they require little or no maintenance. They do not need to be oiled at all; they just need to be wiped over like any other kitchen bench top.

How do I get started? We can send you some photos or samples of different timbers available at the time. From there we give you a quote (all timbers are the same price) and if you decide to go ahead we work with you and or your cabinetmaker to get final sizes. From there we start to manufacture your new solid timber bench tops. In most cases this takes about 3 weeks 1 week to manufacture, 1 week to do the spraying and another week to let the finish harden before delivery.

Installation in most cases is fairly simple and usually done by you or your cabinetmaker. The finished bench tops will come ready to install complete with bench top connectors and biscuits (if needed).

The thing we stress the most when buying a solid timber bench top is to only buy kiln dried timber. Air dried timber is not stable and can contain borers. Kiln dried timber is a stable product and will not contain borers. All our timber is kiln dried (each slab is tested with a moisture meter when taken out of the kiln) and comes with a replace or refund guarantee if it is not dry.
