Wood Countertop Sizes
We’ve made tops as big as 144″ by 144″. Huge tops as big as some smaller kitchens. A couple of things to consider are:
- Will it fit through the door. Yes, we’ve had one or two that wouldn’t so we had to do the final assembly, sanding and finishing on top of the cabinets in the home.
- Will it make the turns needed. We’ve done tops 16′ and over but you have to make sure there are no sharp corners that need to be navigated.
For this it depends on the construction style.
Plank style tops (see construction styles) for the most part max out at 1-5/8″ thick but there are a few species that can be found thicker. Walnut, hard maple and sapele can be sourced up to 2-1/4″ thick. For a thicker look we have to add a built up edge. This can make them look as thick as you wish.
Edge grain tops can all be made up to 5-1/2″ thick.
As with anything of this nature they are longer than a standard product. Typically we run between 2-3 weeks but this can change if the project is large or if the wood being used is not available currently.
We can rush an order for a 10% rush fee. We’re not trying to take advantage of your situation but rush projects put a strain on us and usually require overtime for the fabricators. Check out our remnant slabs to see if one will work for your project. You might get lucky and we can fabricate it quickly with no rush fee.
