  • How To Choose The Right Grade Of Solid Wood Worktop

    When it comes to buying solid wood worktops, the wood you choose will be graded into one of four categories: prime, select, natural or rustic.

That said, this grading system doesn’t necessarily mean that high grade wood is better than lower grade wood, which is what often makes this choice ... READ MORE >
