Recycled Timber Kitchen Counter, Drawers and Cupboard Doors

Image from, photo by Pernille Kaalund
Earlier this year I was designing a kitchen for a client using recycled timber for the kitchen counter and recycled painted timber for the cupboard and drawer fronts. If you wish to try this as a DIY project there are a few things to consider when sourcing the timber and designing your kitchen counter.

Tips:
  • Avoid using timber that has lead paint on the surface.
  • Avoid timber that has been previously damaged by water.
  • Install a sink with a drainer to avoid wet dishes on the timber surface.
  • Use a food grade, non toxic, wax/oil sealer for the bench top.
  • Think about possible joint movement when using recycled timber.
  • Try to use recycled timber where possible. If you have to use new timber consider sourcing timber from a certified sustainable managed source.
Have fun,

    Good piece of advise was to avoid timber which has lead paint on its surface. Not to use timber that is previously damaged with water ia common sense. Good stuff though.
