Not only the natural warmth of timber, but soft, sensuous curves as well
Toolie’s Benchtops has for many years specialised in the manufacture of benchtops incorporating curved laminates. Working to a specified radius, or even an ‘S’ shaped curve, we can determine the laminate size necessary to be able to bend the individual strips of timber and glue them to a pre-determined shape.
As the bending of timber is an inexact science, it is always preferable to work to a full size template so that accuracy can be maintained. Such accuracy to radius must be within certain limits as there will be inevitable ‘spring’ when the curved top is released from the clamps, and even with the most accurate calculations, variations in species, density, and even within species can create differing amounts of spring.
However, many tops have been manufactured to specific criteria over the years, and we have gained the mastery necessary to manufacture a product suitable for all aesthetic, practical, and architectural purposes.
