About Our Oak River Kitchen Islands
Our beautiful bespoke earthy oak river kitchen islands are designed and handcrafted to any shape or size from our timber yard and workshop in Plumpton Green, Sussex. With over 25 years of industry experience we know how to create stunning high quality oak furniture that is guaranteed to last for decades to come, all within an affordable budget.
We craft our stunning oak river kitchen islands from beautiful earthy full stave, wide stave slabs that we exclusively source from sustainable woodlands and forests across the UK, we then transport the timber and vacuum kiln dry them onsite to ensure longevity and protection against disfigurement an distortion. We hand pick each individual slab for its unique natural characteristics such as the knots, cracks and striations. We then infuse these striations to create stunning glassy details throughout. To create the unique iconic river effect, we use two live edged slabs that we set apart and centrally infuse the middle with a layer of epoxy resin. Our beautiful oak river effect kitchen islands are guaranteed to add a unique sense of earthy elegance showing off the timber’s unique characteristics and earthy tones. We can also include any of our special effects, such as our bark preservation technique. For more information regarding our bark preservation technique, please visit our site Earthy Timber.
Our bespoke oak river kitchen islands are available with any of our edging styles, from waney or live for a more rural and rustic appeal, to straight or square for a more modern and contemporary approach. We can also offer our mixed edging which combines elements of both edging styles. We offer two main finishing options, either a clear transparent lacquer which creates a thick shield over the surface against damage and corrosion, or a colour enhancing oil which penetrates the timber to create multiple layers of protection throughout.
Our unique oak river kitchen islands are available alongside any of our oak furniture products, such as our shelving, worktops, breakfast bars and tables. When more than one of our oak products are bought together, we can craft them from the same tree to make a unique bespoke set of matching furniture for your home or business.
We estimate that each oak river kitchen island will take around one month to complete, this is because our process is completely bespoke and unique from our competitors. We do everything all under one roof, from designing to vacuum kiln drying to manufacturing. We also take the time to ensure all our oak kitchen islands are crafted to the highest quality. We will then either deliver to you via dedicated delivery service, or let you know it is ready for collection from our workshop.
