Earthy Timber ‘s Steps to a Beautiful and Durable Wooden Bathroom Top

To provide you with a beautiful oak basin top, walnut basin top or ash basin top that is remarkably resistant to water and humidity, we follow a series of steps:

Salvaged Wood Selection

We carefully choose salvaged oak, walnut, or ash wood that is known for its durability and resistance to moisture. This ensures that the basin top has a strong foundation to withstand the bathroom environment.

Salvaged wood slabs can indeed bring a unique and natural aesthetic to your home or business. The earthy tones and textures of salvaged wood can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, adding a touch of tranquility to any space. Additionally, when properly treated and finished, salvaged wood slabs exhibit remarkable resistance to water and humidity.

Earthy® Timber is a remarkable Zero Waste Furniture Brand that focuses on repurposing wood from unhealthy, fallen trees into exquisite, high-end furniture pieces. This sustainable approach not only gives the wood a second life but also significantly reduces waste.

Through a meticulous treatment process, the reclaimed wood from Earthy® Timber is transformed into furniture that carries a rich history and character. Each piece showcases unique grain patterns and imperfections, adding to its charm and individuality. By incorporating these salvaged wood slabs into your interior design, you can create visually striking focal points that beautifully showcase the inherent beauty of nature.

The repurposed wood from Earthy® Timber not only adds a touch of natural elegance to your space but also serves as a testament to your commitment to sustainability. By choosing furniture made from reclaimed wood, you contribute to the preservation of forests and reduce the demand for newly sourced timber.

In addition to their environmental benefits, Earthy® Timber’s furniture pieces are crafted with exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. The combination of the reclaimed wood’s unique characteristics and the brand’s commitment to quality ensures that each piece is a true work of art.

Whether you are looking for a statement dining table, a stunning console table, or a one-of-a-kind executive desk, Earthy® Timber offers a range of high-end furniture options that not only elevate your interior design but also align with your eco-conscious values. By choosing Earthy® Timber, you can bring the beauty of nature into your home while making a positive impact on the environment.

In-House Wood Kiln Drying

At Earthy Timber we vacuum kiln dry all our wood slabs in-house ensuring long lasting protection against damage and distortion in challenging bathroom environment. Wood is a natural material that can be susceptible to water damage if not properly protected. Regardless of the protective finish you may wish to choose as a final step, it is essential to expertly kiln dry and condition the wood slab before applying the finish.

Resin Infusions in Wood Surface

At Earthy Timber we use resins to enhance the overall aesthetics of the wood. Subtle use of resins highlights the natural beauty of the wood features such as knots and voids while also adding a modern and sleek touch to the solid wood bathroom basin top.

Using resin to fill open knots and striations in solid wood for a bathroom basin top offers both hygienic and aesthetic benefits. When wood is used in a wet environment like a bathroom, open knots and striations can become breeding grounds for bacteria and mold. By filling these beautiful features with resin, we create a smooth and sealed surface that is easy to clean and maintain. Resin is non-porous, making it resistant to water absorption and preventing the growth of harmful microorganisms.

Bathroom Wooden Top Standard Protective Finish

We provide two main types of finishing after a fine sanding process. Either a transparent lacquer which acts as a strong barrier against damage and distortion or a colour enhancing oil which penetrates the timber creating multiple layers of protection.

Bathroom Wooden Top Waterproof Finish

Our signature wood waterproof finish is ideal for bathroom oak basin tops and shelves and available on request at an additional cost. It is highly resistant to water, stains, and scratches, making it an excellent choice for bathroom applications. The finish seals out moisture and enhances the wood’s natural beauty.

Quality Control

We conduct thorough quality checks to ensure that the solid wood basin top meets our high standards. This includes inspecting the finish for any inconsistencies or flaws and making any necessary touch-ups or refinements.

By following these steps, we aim to provide you with a stunning oak, walnut, or ash basin top that not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom but also withstands the challenges of water and humidity. Our goal is to deliver a durable and long-lasting product that you can enjoy for years to come.

Oak Basin Tops Production Time Frame

As each of our unique solid wood bathroom tops is kiln dried, designed and hand-crafted in house without involving third parties we have full control over the process and can therefore deliver a product that meets our high standards.

Our estimated timeframe is 1-2 months. This allows for sufficient time to carefully work on each piece, ensuring attention to detail and quality.

Complementing Products

Our bespoke earthy oak bathroom worktops are available to buy with any of our other complementing products such as our live edge oak window sills, or our oak benches. When two or more of our wooden pieces are bought together, we can craft these from the same tree to make a unique bespoke set of matching furniture for your home or business.

Solid Wood Top Edge

solid wood top edges live edge square edge waney edge

Wood edges corresponding to the grain direction  (usually long edges) are eligible for customisation. Choose between any combination of the following: live edge, square edge, part live & part square edge. Vertical to grain direction edges are always square (usually the short edges).

Square edge wood top

solid wood walnut worktop square edge

As the name implies, all the top edges are finished with a straight edge to give it a traditional finish.

All our square edges are eased by hand. By taking sharpness off the wood edge (contour, border, outline), we accomplish soft, pleasant to touch edge,  whilst preserving crisp, sharp, contemporary appearance. All wood edges opposite to the grain direction (usually short sides, described as width (depth) of the top are always square. Long edges can be either square, natural (live), or part live part square.

Live edge (waney edge) wood top

Otherwise called waney edge wood plank, natural edge wood plank, raw edge wood plank, earthy edge wooden plank or wavy edge wood. Live edge follows the natural outer edge of the wood plank with the wood bark removed.

Part live & part square edge wood top

This is a combination of live and square edge to give the wooden piece a unique finish that works very well with both contemporary and traditional interiors.

 

 

Solid Wood Tops Finishing Service

Raw (Unfinished) solid wooden top– sanded to 120 grit and delivered (or collected) raw, ready for the finishing service, unless our professional finishing service was requested (please note tables are only available finished – fully protected).

Professional Finishing – if  you want to receive your solid wood top  ready to be used immediately, we recommend our in house finishing service. This includes surface fine sanding – preparing the tops for treatment with oil/lacquer to provide a hard-wearing finish. Treatment using Earthy® Timber’s recommended blend of high quality oils/lacquer ideal for surfaces requiring a hard-wearing and water resistant surfaces. The protective layer built with the oil/lacquer is water, heat, alcohol and food acid-resistant. The surface is also  finely sanded between the coats of treatment. Alternatively you may choose to purchase an unfinished solid wood top, which comes with basic sanding  (120 grit) and therefore will require further processing.

Fine sanding + oil

Finishing oil is the most organic method of finishing the wooden tops.  The unique properties of oil enhance the grain over time and amplify the natural tones of wood. The oil penetrates the  deeper layers of solid wood top (worktop) & creates a shield-like effect that prevents damage once the top layer of oil begins to fade. Oil-finished surfaces are easy to repair with another layer of oil, however the downside is that the surface marks quite easily with liquids, therefore it is not a recommended solution for bathrooms or utility rooms.  Your solid wood oak worktop or walnut worktop will require systematic re-oiling in accordance with our maintenance guide so that your solid wood worktop remains nourished and beautiful. The oiled-finish is perfect for those who love the natural qualities of solid wood in their kitchen.

Fine sanding + lacquer 

Lacquer is an ideal solution for durable, protective, low maintenance solid wooden top finish. It is the most cost effective, water resistant solution, ideal  for wooden worktops frequently exposed to moisture such as bathrooms or utility rooms but also solid wood tables and breakfast bars.  Unlike oil, which intensifies the depth of the colour palette, lacquer maintains the natural colour of wood with a transparent, preservative layer. Solid wooden tops finished with lacquer will last years without reapplication unless heavily used.

We utilise a water-based, low VOC solution that offers high resistance to scratches and stains whilst maintaining the natural beauty and feel of the solid wood top. It is ideal for use on hardwood worktops. The mixture also features a non-yellowing, UV protected formula. The protective layer built by the lacquer  is water, heat, alcohol, and food acid resistant.

Delivery Timescale

Due to the artisanal nature of crafting your wooden table, desktop, table top or wooden worktop to order, please allow approximately 8-10 weeks for completion. The timeline may vary based on the intricacy of your project and our workshop schedule.

Prior to scheduled delivery we will contact you to coordinate mutually convenient date and time.

Ensuring Smooth Delivery of  Your Bespoke Furniture 

To ensure a seamless delivery experience please ensure at the time of placing your order that there is space for the bespoke furniture / wooden top to pass through all entryways effortlessly. If space constraints pose a challenge, we can explore alternative solutions for you (additional costs may apply).

Additionally, please note that the wooden table top and legs can be assembled on-site, and in some cases, the wooden countertop can be delivered in parts and assembled at your location. Please inform us at the time of placing your order if specific assembly arrangements are required.

Manual Assistance Guidance

For a smooth delivery experience, please be aware that manual assistance will be necessary to unload your items upon arrival. Please ensure you have a sufficient number of capable individuals available to assist with carrying your furniture from delivery vehicle to your home.

If you prefer a premium delivery service, which includes our staff safely transporting your wooden furniture to designated room and full assembly, please contact us to inquire about this option. Additional charges apply for the premium delivery service.

What is slab of wood?

Slab is a single plank of wood, without any joints on the length or the width. They are more expensive than planked tops because they are rarer to source and more expensive to process due to the lengthy and expert kiln drying procedure.

What is a planked wood top?

A planked wooden top is constructed from multiple staves (planks) jointed only on the width, never on the length, of the top, each stave  forming one continuous strip for the entire length of the worksurface. Planked tops are less expensive than a single large plank of wood (slab), but there is no compromise on the excellent quality of the natural wood top.

What ‘full stave’ top means?

Full stave means the wood plank is running along the whole length of the top, without any joints (as opposed to the surface being made up of little blocks, also known as block-style).

What ‘stave width’ means?

Stave width refers to the width of each of the wood planks. Stave width otherwise means ‘plank width’.

What is live edge?

Otherwise called waney edge, natural edge, raw edge or earthy edge. Live edge follows the natural outer edge of the wood plank with the bark removed

What is square edge?

As the name implies, all the edges are finished with a straight edge to give it a traditional finish. Our square edges are eased by hand. By taking sharpness off the edge, we accomplish soft, pleasant to touch contour,  whilst preserving crisp appearance. All edges opposite to the grain direction (usually short sides, being the depth of the top) are always square. Long edges can be either square, natural (live), or part live part squared contoured.

What is part live and part square edge?

This is a combination of live and square edge to give the wooden piece a unique finish that works very well with both contemporary and traditional interiors.

Do you work with softwood (such as pine worktops)?

We specialise in English and European hardwoods (deciduous trees with broad flat leaves)  this is because as the name suggests, the wood of hardwood trees is harder, denser, tighter than the wood of other trees and as a result the hardwood tops are very durable. We do not use pine (coniferous species, small needle like leaves) for our projects as softwood is easy to dent and the grain is not as tight as in hard wood and in our experience they are not suitable for wooden worktops or flooring.

It takes more effort and is more costly to process the hardwood than softwood, this is because hard wood is tougher, more condensed, making their wood perfect for our high quality, beautiful wooden table tops and solid wood worktops. Our wild walnut table tops or oak desks are practical pieces of art.

What is the difference between slab top (single plank top),  table top planked and wooden worktops?

Appearance and price. Our full stave worktops are made up of jointed planks with more narrow staves (compared to the planked table tops). This is the less expensive option.

Our planked table tops are made up of jointed planks with wider staves. The planks are book-matched (meaning they originate from the same tree). This is the more expensive option.

You may also opt for a slab. Slabs are single, very wide planks. Slabs are priced significantly higher than the table tops. It is also possible to buy DIY slabs – professionally vacuum kiln dried, levelled and planed material (with no further treatment).

Why your table legs are more expensive?

Our high quality, handcrafted to order in our workshop, removable table legs and matching plates are calibrated individually to each wooden surface (important factors to consider are weight, width, length, thickness, construction of the table top). The supporting plates are embedded in timber so that your table will never ‘wobble’. It is a truly bespoke service that is tailored to the size & weight of your surface but also and equally importantly, allowing for the natural movement of timber as it expands and contracts as the temperature and/or humidity of the room changes.

This prevents cracks and splits in the wood. Paired with our precise vacuum kiln-drying method, this provides you with the furniture to last for generations.

Please note that, for obvious reasons, we cannot advise on legs and support from other sources.Using the legs not supplied by us invalidates warranty on the surface.

Why vacuum kiln drying of wood is important?

All our timber is vacuum kiln dried below 10% moisture content at the very core of the wood plank, as this is an essential process  to ensure the wood is stable and suitable for internal use. Regrettably a large proportion of timber on the market is not processed in this way and clients are unaware of the potential dangers of purchasing incorrectly dried timber including warping, twisting, swelling, encouraging the infestation of woodworm. Also neighbouring surfaces  regardless of composition (mdf, timber plywood etc.) could potentially be affected and damaged. Unfortunately these problems can take months to manifest themselves by which time it is too late.

Timber is a natural product 

We personally hand-pick the quality, character logs for all our projects. As timber grading specialists we identify the trees with unique features and natural, earthy characteristics such as beautiful grain, knots, voids, pippy scatterings and splits that are compatible with our love for rustic-modern perfection. We invite nature to your home and our surfaces will reflect that rustic excellence subtly enhanced with clear epoxy resin, so you can see them and enjoy them yet the surface is hygienic to use.

If you prefer very uniform appearance, without character our product is not a natural choice for you.

Can I select wood planks /wood slabs for my project?

For 99% of our commissions the planks are selected by our experts on the customer’s behalf. Our instagram accounts will give you an insight into our past projects if you want to see examples and diversity of colour, grain detail and rustic features.

Our skilled carpenters will select the boards that are colour, grain & feature compatible. We instinctively know, which wood boards are going to work in harmony ensuring the best aspects of the wood are displayed.   We then enhance the rustic knots and voids  with our signature resin infill technique, so that no two surfaces will ever look the same.  If you wanted to personally select the wood planks for your project, this service is available for single items over £5000. Items below this value will entail an extra charge of £360+vat paid up front. The selection process can take place either in our workshop or via mobile devices by prearranged appointment.

What is unfinished wood top / raw wood top?

sanded to 120 grit and delivered (or collected) raw, ready for the finishing service, unless our professional finishing service was requested.

What is included in Professional Finishing?

If  you want to receive your surface ready to be used immediately, we recommend our in house finishing service. This includes surface fine sanding – preparing the tops for treatment with oil/lacquer to provide a hard-wearing finish. Treatment using Earthy® Timber’s recommended blend of high quality oils/lacquer ideal for surfaces requiring a hard-wearing and water resistant surfaces. The protective layer built with the oil/lacquer is water-, heat-, alcohol- and food acid-resistant. The surface is also  finely sanded between the coats of treatment.

Alternatively you may choose to purchase an unfinished surface, which comes with basic sanding  (120 grit) and therefore will require further processing.

What is your lead time?

Because your goods are crafted to order, it takes approximately 5 – 8 weeks depending on the complexity of your project and our workshop schedule.

Is the wood for my project responsibly sourced?

The trees that we choose to work with are sustainably sourced and replenished with newly planted saplings.

Please note tolerance for square edges

+/- 2mm

Please note tolerance for waney edges or part live part square edges.

Up to 100mm for standard projects, usually less than that.

4 reviews for Live Edge Oak Bathroom Shelves Vanity Tops

  1. Joshua Vincent

    I wanted a live edge oak shelf for my bathroom to sit a basin on, and came across Earthy Timber. Anna was very helpful answering questions I had, and I knew I was in safe hands. You can truly bespoke to your taste, whatever size or shape, and even request specific features such as knot, bark, resin fill etc. An item like this will be pricey, but if you appreciate true craftsmanship and want a talking piece then don’t hesitate!

  2. Hairstyles Women

    Such stunning wood bathroom tops! Carry on the superb works, I have incorporated you into my interior design blogroll dedicted to organic, high end wood projects, I think it’ll improve the value of my website 🙂

  3. Bennett

    I absolutely love my live edge oak bathroom vanity top! I’m posting my review a year later as it’s good to test the practicality of the product first. There are not many competent companies on the market but Earthy Timber exceeded all our expectations. They are all in one: timber yard, wood drying specialist and artisans. They have extensive stock and ensure their wooden creation is a highlight of your space. I paid extra for waterproof finish and it’s fantastic. No watermarks, no scratches on the wood surface. It’s an option from their Earthy Timber’s Luxury range but well worth paying for. We embrace imperfection and Earthy Timber knows how to use it to full potential. Knots and openings are filled with resin so that the timber surface is very smooth and gorgeous to touch yet filled with resin cavities giving an insight to timber’s deeper fibres. I cannot recommend Earthy Timber enough!

  4. Caroline J

    We were looking to bring outside hues indoors and you guys did an amazing job. Our bathroom’s live edge oak vanity echos soft sandy beaches surrounding our home at Sandbanks of Dorset. I cannot resist runnig my hand along the tactile and smooth natural wood edge. The magic is that resin features respond to natural colours indoors the same way we do when we are at the beach or in the garden – it creates a relaxed and happy atmosphere. Thank you Earthy Timber!
