GG Joinery offers American Ash worktops.
Our full stave wood worktops are constructed from wide planks of American Ash that run the full length of the worktop to ensure maximum durability and strength throughout years of constant use.
All Ash panels and Ash worktops are supplied fully sanded to smooth, 180 grit finish, ready for oiling without any additional preparation.
