Ash has an open grain texture, similar to a red oak but with very pale greys and honey tones. It has a very straight grain making it very strong and long lasting. An Ash worktop works well with kitchen cabinet doors of a strong colour. These are Ash worktops with 40mm wide staves (blocks). These worktops are constructed from solid pieces of timber which come in random lengths and a fixed width of 40mm. The staves / blocks are connected via finger joints (v grooves), that's why they are also referred to as finger jointed panels. All of our wooden worktops are manufactured to the highest possible standard using carefully selected timbers from sustainable sources.
