First of all, Caramel Bamboo Worktops are produced by enhancing the colours of standard bamboo. Because Bamboo is a fast growing timber it is consequently highly sustainable. Bamboo worktops are created with layers of bamboo that are cut and stacked under high pressure. Consequently this means that when the bamboo is cross-cut the worktop might exhibit small gaps in the bamboo layers. However, Caramel bamboo worktops provide a realistic alternative to other worktops including Oak, Beech and Iroko.
Standard worktops feature solid timbers in 40mm wide staves which are finger jointed with glue under high pressure. Similarly, any prime worktops means stave colours and appearance are selected to produce a more uniform appearance. When the staves are glued the worktop lengths are then cut to size and sanded to a fine 150 grit finish. Edges are squared as standard.
Because all the worktops we supply are manufactured in Europe there is more control over quality. Close monitoring of imported timber quality, production and lead times keeps stock levels at a reasonable level. Because we don’t keep worktops on site all worktops are obtained to special order. This normally takes between 3 and 7 working days.

Worktop availability and appearance
Finally, we don’t keep worktops in stock at our Devon Warehouse. All worktops are obtained to special order which normally takes between 3 and 7 working days.
Because of the natural qualities of wooden worktops each worktop will be unique – i.e. no two worktops are alike. Additionally almost all natural wood darkens over time as it matures. Therefore new solid wood worktops will often appear lighter when first delivered, then they will change over the months to acquire the final colour hue. Also please note that any items stood on the worktop during this period will slow, or even stop, this natural process of colour change. Other colour changes can occur depending on how frequently the worktop is oiled.
