At Kitchen Surplus, we have worked hard to bring you a selection of solid wood worktops at affordable prices. Our range of oak worktops includes 5 different options, so we have something to suit every style as well as every budget. Oak is a popular choice as it is naturally incredibly hardwearing and has an attractive, warm golden colour.
Perfect for a farmhouse kitchen, our Rustic Oak and Farmhouse Oak worktops feature a prominent grain pattern and striking colour variations, for a natural look that suits traditional kitchens.
Our Premium Oak worktops are our most popular option, as they suit a wide range of different styles. They have slender 20mm wide staves and an attractive grain making them the perfect option for any home. For a more luxurious option, our Prime Oak worktops feature wider 40mm staves and a more consistent grain for a sophisticated look.
For something a little different, our dark oak worktops have a rich, deep colour that looks more similar to black American walnut or wenge worktops. This is achieved through a special treatment that darkens the oak worktop throughout. Dark oak worktops are perfect for creating a dramatic look, so are great if you want your worktop to make a statement.
All of our oak worktops are available and in stock to order online today – alternatively, you can give us a call on 01452 725 145 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order if you would prefer.
We have a range of different worktops available in a selection of timber types. Often there will be different styles for different timber types, including our Rustic and Farmhouse options, which are ideal for creating a Farmhouse kitchen theme.
These characterful surfaces have a prominent grain pattern, making them great for a traditional farmhouse kitchen. Occasional knots add to the natural look of this worktop, with a charming appeal that is ideally suited to a more classically styled home.
Our rustic beech worktops feature wide colour variations and distinctive grain pattern. The light colouring of this timber works well paired with white cabinets, which is a popular look for a farmhouse kitchen. These beech surfaces offer excellent value for money and have a rustic charm that will look at home in any country home.
With a variety of different hues featured on every surface, farmhouse ash worktops are a unique option. These worktops have a variable natural grain, adding to the non-uniform charm of the countertops – perfect for a farmhouse kitchen. Our farmhouse ash worktops have an unrefined appeal that looks right at home in a traditionally styled kitchen.
Slightly different to our farmhouse oak worktops, our rustic oak worktops feature larger colour variation and a more prominent grain. This is fantastic for those wanting to create a farmhouse kitchen, as the slightly ‘rough-and-ready’ look adds character to any home. Of course, nothing about this surface is rough – it is still sanded to the same smooth finish as our other worktops, ready for oiling.

Bamboo is a unique choice in wooden worktops as technically, it is not a wood but a grass. Because of this, it does not have growth rings like our other timber worktops do. Instead it has a uniform pattern of visible pores that are broken up by nodes, which creates an interesting and unusual worktop. Naturally water-resistant, bamboo is an incredibly durable option and is available from as either bamboo or caramel bamboo.
Our bamboo worktops are the lighter of the two options and are comprised of many 20mm wide staves that are sandwiched together to create a 40mm thick surface. These beautiful pale work surfaces will gradually darken over time to reach a golden hue that showcases the intricate and unusual pore structure of the grass with even more contrast. Bamboo is one of the most ‘green’ of all our timber worktops as it is hugely sustainable; the species we use is fully grown within 5 – 6 years. This means that any plants harvested can be replenished quickly, making it an incredibly environmentally friendly option.
Caramel bamboo has the same beautiful surface texture as our regular bamboo, but is treated slightly differently after it has been harvested. Rather than allowing the bamboo to dry and straighten naturally, caramel bamboo is heated by steam or boiling. By caramelising the natural sugars that are present, the final colour of the bamboo is darkened, resulting in the beautiful caramel shade you can see in the image. This process does not affect the bamboo in terms of strength or resilience, making it ideal for use in timber worktops. Caramel bamboo work surfaces are also constructed from many thin staves that are 20mm in width that together create a worktop that measures 40mm in depth.
Like all the other worktops in our range, both our bamboo and caramel bamboo options look beautiful in a number of settings and are sanded to 150-grit finish before we deliver them. It’s up to you to apply the finish of your choice before installation.

To assist with the installation of our superb range of timber worktops, we also stock a fantastic range of accessories that make it even easier to fit your own hardwood kitchen worktops.
If you are plan on fitting our Rustic Oak worktops (or any of the other worktops in our collection) yourself, we would recommend you also order one of our great-value worktop routing jigs.
We have many great quality jigs that have been specifically designed to help customise and install wooden worktops, which are available in different sizes to suit worktops ranging from 620mm to 900mm in width.
Each jig features a special cut-out to accommodate mitre joins, as well as cut-outs for worktop connector bolt recesses, that make it easy to join multiple worktops. Whatever your level of usage, we offer a variety of jigs to suit your needs; If you are installing our worktops yourself, our Value range is ideal, and starts at just £17.50 for a 700mm Value Worktop Jig. For professional kitchen fitters our laminated jigs are more suitable: these are more hard-wearing, and start at £25 for a 650mm Solid Laminate Worktop Jig.
To complement our range of worktop jigs, we also supply jigs for other kitchen and home fitting needs. Consider purchasing our drainer jig, aperture jig and hotrod jig to complete any kitchen worktop customisation with the upmost precision.
If you have any queries about any of the jigs in our range, do not hesitate to contact us via telephone, email or social media.
Solid timber worktops are a beautiful kitchen feature, and none so striking as those constructed from our stunning exotic woods. Iroko, zebrano and wenge are distinctive timbers, each with their own unique aesthetics. If you are tempted by one of these eye-catching solid wood worktops, you can find out more in today’s blog:
Combining deep golden tones, iroko worktops feature an array of shades from warm honey to dark, rich chocolate. These lustrous wood work surfaces showcase eye-catching iridescence in some of their 40mm-wide staves – one of the reasons this hard-wearing timber is used for ornaments and ceremonial instruments in its African homeland. The colour of these worktops will become enriched with age, darkening to a warm bronze hue.
If you would like to infuse your kitchen with character, why not add an island unit with impressive zebrano worktops? Sometimes known as ‘zebra wood’, it’s not hard to tell how this timber got its name! Incorporating dark chocolate markings across beautiful caramel-coloured grain, this work surface is truly distinctive.
Dark and dramatic, wenge worktops are perfect for creating a sleek, stylish look in contemporary kitchens. They are also immensely durable, sometimes described as the wooden equivalent to granite. 50% more dense than oak – which itself is incredibly robust – this worktop is not only luxurious but also one of great strength.
No matter which worktop you select, all our wood is kiln-dried to ensure drying is thorough and to protect against decay. Once carefully assembled with finger-jointing and bonded under high pressure, every worktop is sanded to a smooth 150-grit finish ready for oiling.

Timber worktops are the ideal kitchen component for creating a warm and welcoming rustic feel. Well-suited to traditional country cottages, the use of natural materials is imperative to this look – so don’t be afraid to go to town!
An essential surface for producing this wholesome kitchen style is, of course, our rustic oak worktops. Complete with lots of natural features, every one of these kitchen countertops is full of charm and unique characteristics.
To complement your solid wood work surfaces, we suggest the use of cream-painted cabinet frontals, with the addition of an accent colour. To enhance the warm and cosy aesthetic, why not opt for a wine red or alternatively – to harness the truly natural look of the great outdoors – accent your cream palette with a gentle shade of green. Before committing to a colour, consider ordering samples of the paints you feel might work alongside rustic oak in your kitchen space.
Your chosen kitchen hardware should also support this rustic look, so we recommend the addition of solid oak cabinet door knobs, or distressed pewter cup handles. Black-painted metal pull handles also sit well within a traditional rustic theme or – for a more ‘on trend’ look – select some polished rose gold handles. Don’t be afraid to raid local antiques retailers for handles and knobs that will work alongside rustic oak.
Our matching rustic oak chopping board are another perfect addition to rustic kitchens, and will protect your worktops, too. Consider both your colours and accessories carefully to help you create a truly homely, rustic kitchen.

Real wood chopping boards are a stylish accessory to complement timber worktops, and can be found in nearly every wood species in our range!
Whether purchasing for yourself or for giving as the perfect present for friends who love spending time in the kitchen, our wooden chopping boards are ideal for preserving the stunning surface of real wood worktops. Made entirely from high-quality solid timber, these chopping boards measure 448mm x 298mm x 40mm and provide a generous amount of room for cutting fresh fruit and vegetables. They also make an attractive serving platter for bread, meat or cheese.
To complete the impressive look of these wooden chopping boards, we add a rounded profile to the top and bottom edges, and smooth curved corners. Each one is carefully sanded and finished with Danish oil, to nourish and enrich the natural grain.
Matching your chopping boards with your worktops creates an incredibly sophisticated look. Alternatively, you may prefer to opt for a strong colour contrast, for maximum impact in a modern kitchen. For enhanced worktop protection, we also recommend stainless steel hotrods, which can be set into purpose-cut grooves to provide a practical and stylish spot to place hot pans or dishes.

Walnut is a gorgeous timber, showcasing beautiful colour variation thanks to its pale sapwood and darker heartwood. These timber worktops are available in a variety of styles on our website, including European walnut, Premium Walnut and black American walnut.
Our European walnut worktops are the most traditional of the three, incorporating a series of staves that each measure 40mm thick and 40mm wide – perfect for exhibiting the unique grain pattern and contrasting colour of the wood. This timber is naturally hard-wearing with a delicate curved grain, providing a work surface that is both practical and decorative.
Similar to our European walnut, our Premium Walnut collection utilises narrower, 20mm-wide staves. These staves are also 40mm thick, making them an equally robust choice for wooden worktops. These slimmer staves emphasise the contrast in colour, and would be particularly well-suited to a modern home.
The final worktop in our selection of walnut surfaces is black American walnut. This darker timber is immensely luxurious, providing a rich and lustrous countertop that is ideal for lavish kitchen design and high-contrast colour schemes. These worktops are made up of 40mm staves, which slowly darken to near-black as the timber matures.
All our timber worktops are sanded to a super smooth 150-grit finish before delivery, so you can apply the finish of your choice. If you would like to get in touch to place an order, please telephone us on 01452 725145, or email email@example.com.
