We produce our Sapele worktops in four different styles:

1. Wide Block sapele WorktopsWide Block sapele Worktop Style

Our classic wide block are a bit more special than the average, with random width, wide jointed staves showing off much more of the Sapele grain pattern, they are very much the premium of Sapele block worktops. Our Sapele wide block worktops are our most cost effective option, representing considerable value for money in terms of quality and appearance when compared to mass produced narrow block worktops.

Thicknesses available: 40mm.

2. Traditional Plank sapele WorktopsTraditional Plank sapele Worktop Style

Wide, planked worktops, a style pioneered by Norfolk Oak, featuring long staves of our rich coloured Sapele. This style of traditional plank was inspired by a stately home visit, where we discovered a similar technique had been used in four hundred year old wooden worktops.

Thicknesses available: 40mm.

3. Super Stave sapele WorktopsSuper Stave sapele Worktop Style

Full, single stave Sapele worktops with wide, long planks. Very much the Rolls-Royce of Sapele worktops! Super stave worktops have become something of a Norfolk Oak signature. Continuous, wide planks of timber running the whole length of your wooden worktop, really showing off the beautiful grain patterns of our furniture grade African Sapele.

Thicknesses available: 40mm.

About our Sapele

about section

At Norfolk Oak we only choose renewable sources for all of our timber. Sapele is the darkest of our African timbers. The Sapele tree grows from around 45 metres to 60 metres tall.

Our Sapele timber possesses a beautiful grain pattern of long straight lines of contrasting dark lines with hints of golden highlights. Sapele is a fantastic choice for any kitchen which can be improved by a rich dark coloured worktop.

Worktop Finishing

Installation Oiling
If you would like the reassurance of us pre-oiling your sapele worktops, we can do so with our installation oiling service. Your sapele 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.
