How much does a solid timber bench top cost?

The prices for solid timber bench tops are based on a square metre rate depending on the timber and thickness. The following rates may help you in calculating a rough price. These should be used as a guide only, to assist in deciding whether these tops are in your price range.

We generally recommend tops 40mm thick, as they create the greatest feature and are most structurally sound. However, we can manufacture tops any thickness, although some thinner tops are not suitable for some applications.

Making Quality Bench tops

NE Timber Benchtops specialises in high quality solid timber bench tops, custom made to the requirements of each client. We do not stock pre-made tops. It can take 2 to 3 weeks to manufacture a typical top, in a process that transforms rough sawn timber to a beautifully finished top with unique grain features.

Tops are manufactured from either rough sawn boards or milled slabs. Special tops with only one join can be made using two slabs where the grain is ‘book matched’

The boards or slabs are dressed and thicknessed, and glued together to produce the desired width. The tops start taking shape in the clamping racks  while the glue dries.

Each top requires a number of sanding processes before it is ready for finishing. A great deal of work in involved in cleaning out and filiing gum veins and any blemishes.

Most tops are sealed with a two-component polyurethane, which is very durable and water resistant. Six or eight coats could be applied to achieve the appropriate quality finish.
