About Iroko timber
An exotic African timber combining visual appeal with durability. When first cut Iroko has a yellow colour which mellows to shades of reddy-brown. The timber is hard, durable and also has a naturally high oil content making it ideal for kitchen use. Because of its durability it is also known as “African teak” . Finally, the different Iroko staves will have very vivid colours when oiled.
Standard Iroko Worktops
Standard Iroko worktops feature 40mm wide staves which are finger jointed with glue under high pressure. Additionally the prime option allows for a more stringent matching of stave colours. When gluing is completed the worktops are cut to size and sanded to a fine 150 grit finish. Edges are squared as standard. Finally, the installer or end-used can finish the Iroko Worktops with Osmo Top Oil
All the worktops we supply are manufactured in Europe. Because of this it is easier to monitor production quality. Sourcing from Europe also helps keep lead times down to a minimum. We don’t keep worktops on site, they are all obtained to special order. As a result this usually means a lead time between 3 and 7 working days.

Worktop availability and appearance

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.
