Maple Worktops

Maple is a wood of phenomenal hardness and exotic beauty. The grain varies like waves breaking on rocks, which creates some of the finest and most elegant figuring seen in wood. It is crucial for Maple - in this case Black Maple - to come from areas where there are incredibly hard winters. Our Maple is from the very northern States in America, for example Vermont (the home of Maple syrup), New Hampshire and Maine, or from Southern Canada. The sort of places where you would expect to have snow on the ground for five months straight.

About our Maple

AMERICAN MAPLE

Black Maple is around thirty percent harder than Oak. Which is a pretty good starting point for a kitchen worktop then. Like our Cherry, which is chosen specifically for its colour, the same is true of Maple worktops. We have tried hard to create a Maple worktop which is not too 'white' and not too brown either. The results are spectacular.

Maple was always the original choice for butchers. Incredibly hard-wearing, easy to maintain and a good contrasting colour to prepare meat on, little has changed. Except perhaps that maple is now seen for the beautifully subtle timber it is. With grain sometimes looking like crushed silk, we use it to great effect in kitchens where light can be an issue, or we want to balance out the colours of the units and walls. Harder even than White Oak, Glacial Maple is very pale, and once oiled reflects light wonderfully.

Worktop Finishing

Installation Oiling
If you would like the reassurance of us pre-oiling your maple worktops, we can do so with our installation oiling service. Your maple worktops will then arrive ready for you to install as soon as you receive them. Read more about our Installation Oiling Service.

Nano Coating
Nano-coating is a 2 Part Process. The first application consists of 2 separate coatings, which are designed to react and bind with the timber. This treatment alone is not enough to protect timber but when combined with the second application, it protects the initial coat and forms a barrier against soap and alcohol etc. This second coating is water/scratch resistant, the daily wear and tear from sticky and wet glasses will prove the resilience of our nano coating.

If you have more specific requirements in mind or would like to know what to do to receive a complete quotation please contact us.

White Wash
A popular traditional wood finishing effect, whitewash worktops add a wonderfully rustic style to your kitchen. Depending on what finish you choose, our whitewash can be applied during pre-installation oiling or with our advanced nano-coating treatment.
