Oak is the most popular wood species and personifies everything that people look for when they choose a solid wood worktop. It is extremely strong and hard wearing which is ideal for worktops and flooring alike. The rich colour will mature and darken over time and add character to any kitchen. Choosing an Oak worktop from Volume Trading guarantees you a truly unique product that will give you pleasure for many years to come.

icon_silkwood Silkwood is our unique surface finish that results in one of the highest quality finishes in the market. The process was originally developed for oiling and finishing the new Eurostar St. Pancras terminal Jatoba wood flooring. With several million visitors every year passing over the floor it’s proven to be extremely hard wearing and stain resistant - that technology and experience has now been introduced into our worktop ranges so you can experience the benefit of Silkwood. The combination of WOCA penetrating oils and the patented Silkwood finish gives a finish that is unrivalled within the marketplace and a worktop that literally feels like silk!
