Above is an example of how the staves are finger jointed together along their length using glue. Timber panels are glued using high frequency heating (combination of pressure and molecular heating up) this means that, if used in normal humidity conditions, very little tension will appear in the panels.
The average moisture content of the timber is 8-10% (tolerance +/- 2%).
All our timber worktops are installed already treated with oil on both the top and underside of the top. On completion the work surfaces receive a final sand and oiling.
