A Guide to Wooden Cutlery Trays in Solid Wood Kitchens
Solid wood cutlery drawers are a new addition to our existing range of kitchen accessories and come in a variety of beautiful hardwood choices in a number of sizes, spanning from 310mm all the way up to 910mm wide.
Each cutlery drawer is created from the same timber as our high-quality wood worktops and is manufactured in-house using our precise CNC machine. The machine cuts the separate cutlery inserts into the solid hardwood block, engraves each section to specify which type of cutlery the tray is for, and after being removed from the machine is then sanded by hand to create an incredibly smooth finish.
Whilst our cutlery trays are not supplied with any treatment applied, we recommend either covering them with a couple of coats of Rustins Danish Oil, lacquer, or painting them to match your kitchen.
