These beautiful, hand made Character Oak, solid wood desktops are made to the highest specification in the UK, available from stock, for despatch within 2-3 days.  The most popular sizes are shown, however, we can produce almost any size required on a 4-week lead time, please email and request a quote.

This desktop is for the real wood purist, made of beautiful solid oak, possessing huge character (smells gorgeous too!), and featuring natural knots and full depth of grain variation from multiple planks, each desktop is expertly sanded and finished with matt lacquer for a smooth refined touch.

This desktop is solid natural wood, 26mm thick (+/-), with natural hand finished edges and has specially inserted inset metal batons on the underside of the desktop to give structural strength to the natural planked wood.  This process helps these tops not to warp or split as other solid wood tops without bracing will do, however, it has to be said that it is virtually impossible to stop natural wood doing these things, and a small degree of warping or splitting may occur. 

All cracks, knots and imperfections on the topside of the desktop are filled with a black wood filler which adds to the character look of the wood, however, please note that the underside of the desktop is unfinished and untreated as this is never seen.

Important: Slight distortion, warping, bowing and splitting of up to 2 mm isn't considered a faulty product for the reason above, if you have any reservations before purchasing a solid wood desktop due to these factors, please consider our engineered wood tops as an alternative, these give you real wood without the imperfections found in solid wood.

Please note:  These desktops are not supplied as pre-drilled with metal screw inserts as our standard desktops are when bought complete with a desk frame due to the characteristics of the wood which limit the CNC machinery.

Desktop Care

As these are natural products care must be taken with them to ensure they are always looking their best and avoid premature breakdown.  Regularly cleaning the top is especially important to ensure that it remains looking its best for years and this is best done with a mildly soapy warm cloth and dried immediately afterwards with a dry cloth.  Under no circumstances should anti-bac or household cleaning products be used as this will attack the lacquer and result in a 'sticky' feel to the surface.

Please note that unlike our MFC desktops, these natural wood tops cannot withstand ink and pencil marks and will dent if objects are pushed into it or knock against it.  Any spills need to be cleaned immediately as allowing liquid to remain for any length of time will eventually stain and discolour the surface and possibly cause warping.

Important:  Please be aware that all deliveries are to 'Kerbside Only' which is standard industry practice, the carriers will leave your pallet or parcels at your door, they will not take them inside for you.  This is due to insurance being void if the driver does this. 

Important: Your order may be delivered on a pallet due to weight, size or configuration.  We do this in order to minimise damage with certain products.  A pallet will consist of a number of parcels wrapped in black plastic; tear open the plastic to move your parcels from the pallet into your premises.  The pallet will be your responsibility to dispose of responsibly.

Our expert packers in the warehouse usually place a ‘seconds’ or damaged desktop on the base of the pallet to act as extra protection against knocks, so please be aware there may be an unwrapped desktop with one corner broken off sitting on the base of the pallet, please do not refuse delivery as your desktop will not be exposed but safely wrapped up in cardboard with edge protectors placed inside.

        The desktop will have metal strengthening battens and a series of holes in the underside of the desk, these are NOT predrilled holes to use for the frame fixings but are the result of battens screwed to the desktops to keep them from warping in storage. See images below, please ignore these holes when building your desk.
