Recycled timber countertops

There is something to be said about using recycled timber within the kitchen.

Even introducing an old butcher block island table adds age and character to any kitchen design.

If you are unable to source a butcher's block table then there are a few other options for a timber countertop that would give you that same aged look.

Recycled timber countertops - For an alternative to new timber counters

1. Durapalm - An alternative to timber. Wood havested from coconut palms (past their fruit-bearing years), FSC certified and Formaldehyde-free.

2. Windfall Lumber - Recycled timber counter tops made from various sources ranging from salvaged structural timbers to local family farms to exotic hardwood pallets.

3. Teragren - Made from renewable bamboo.

4. Australian recycled timber - FSC certified timber and recycled timber salvaged from demolition sites, woolsheds and wharfs across Australia.

The main rules for sourcing recycled timber are to look for the FSC certified timber logo or to source timber from you local timber recycling centre or recycled timber joiner.

Have fun.
