Acacia Oiled Hardwood Kitchen Worktop - 220 x 60 x 2.6cm

Just bought one of these as a worktop in a Utility room. Ok, it is only 26mm thick rather than the preferable 40mm, but it is solid wood, well made and finished, a quick teak oil and jobs done. Homebase even sawed it down to size for me. Check instore for stock. Would also be good for cabinet construction.

This solid hardwood project panel is made from finger jointed lamellas. Finished with a high quality HardWax oil to give the best natural surface treatment for wet environments.

  • Rounded front edge
  • Surface treated with hardwax oil for wet environments
  • Versatile in application
  • Popular species of hardwood for bench tops and DIY panels
  • Contemporary wood look

just coming back from Homebase, out again in a minute and before they go
Only trouble with all these homebase deals is that there are no stores near me
I looked at this... seemed SUPER light and is very thin, not a problem but worth noting.
Just a quick update. Have now fitted the worktop across a 2.1m aperture. Even though it is on 26mm thick, it shows no sign of bowing in the middle. I will be installing a cupboard unit underneath though, just to make sure.
How thick does a worktop need to be? I don't have any knives than can go deeper than a couple of milimetres. Also, I use a cutting board.

You did that quick! I'd still be measuring the lines for the thousandth time just to make sure!

me too usually, but I already had the wall battens up, Homebase cut to length, so it was only cutting out a pipe space and screwing on to the battens. Oiling the damn thing is going to take the time :-(
None of my local ones cut to size? Your lucky to have that service. They all said it was removed from there stores 4 years ago
I would appreciate your opinions on if you think the would be suitable as a computer desk surface. I would probably cut it down to about 160 as 220 is a bit too big for my needs.

Would it be strong enough to mount a computer monitor arm to without the worktop bowing ?

I would say that it would be suitable for this application

Yes it would be. I did the same with an oak counter top then bought those as I was going to make a cupboard underneath but changed that plan and getting more of these for the kitchen and just used an ikea Alex for now as a set of drawers.

yes but make like a lintel for the full length screwed on it on the under back to keep it straight over a time, a minimum of 8cm wide (softwood will do), 1 screw every 15cm or less and from the top, if you do it nicely it will look good even if the screws will be seen. It helps a lot to not start to bend, it will under his own weight or lay it down on something like draws on both sides and leave a space in the middle for your chair, last option is what I did. The longer you keep it the wider the lintel better
