Hey deTerra dudes,

We’ve got some real treats in store for you! You might have noticed we’re tantalised by all things timberrific, so this week we’re bringing y’all our top five accessories for wood kitchens. And guess what? They’re all made out of wood!

one in a million: the floating wine bottle

Numero uno on our list is this wonderful wine holder. The grown-ups among us may be partial to the occasional tipple, making this a fabulous and nifty countertop accessory or table centrepiece. Produced from the end sections of wine and Scotch whisky barrel staves, these bottle holders combine an awesome illusion with evocative, quirky pieces of wood.

‘wine-not’ check these out on www.notonthehighstreet.com; made by Phil Rao Studio Two, they are available in light and dark finishes, and would make a fab gift at just £20.

it takes two: weathered oak bar stool

This seat makes for a fabby breakfast bar stool! Combining slim metal legs with a chunky oak seat, its eye-catching design mixes the rustic with the contemporary. Tuck into your bacon and eggs perched on this bad boy, and truly make breakfast the best meal of the day.

Take a load off with this superb seating from www.roseandgrey.co.uk.

three times the charm: gorgeous olive wood bowl

This stunning round olive wood bowl has been meticulously hand-turned on a lathe, and for soups, dips or cereal it’s totally top notch! The rustic charm of the bowl owes thanks – in part – to the lovely contrasting colours of its unusual and irregular pattern. We’re absolutely ‘bowled’ over!

one 4 all: oak cutlery drawer inserts

We can’t help but shout about our solid oak cutlery drawer inserts! They’re extremely useful for stopping cutlery and utensils getting jumbled up, and – as an added bonus – feature finely-engraved symbols on each section.

Hand-finished and super smooth, these are a mighty classy accessory for all wood kitchens.

Check out the cutlery drawer trays on the deTerra website – available in a whole range of timber types and sizes.

five stars: eggcellent egg holder

We wouldn’t usually advise putting all your eggs in one basket, however in the case of this lovely solid beech egg holder we absolutely would! Making a pleasing worktop accessory and ensuring your eggs are easily to hand, this carved block of hardwood is simplistic and sleek. They say you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs but – with this brilliant holder – you know your eggs will be safe until you need them.

You can snaffle up this fine piece of wood for £19.95 at www.worm.co.uk.

So that completes our run-down of five favourite wood kitchen accessories; these perfectamundo items show that wood is ideal for worktops and cool kitchen components alike. If you’ve got any wonderful all-timber trimmings in your kitchen, we would love you to share your pics with us via Twitter and Facebook – just give us a shout!

Welcome, lumber lovers!

Cabineto loves Welsh spoons natural kitchens.

Here at deTerra, romance is in the air and we’re feeling a little mushy, so we wanted to wish you a happy Valentine’s Day! Cabineto was certainly feeling the deTerra love on Sunday: being the kind souls that we are, we sent him a Celtic love spoon as a gesture of our immense affection. The intricately carved spoons come in loads of different styles, and are a lovely way of telling folk how you feel!

Love spoons have been given as gifts for centuries, and each beautiful, handcrafted feature symbolises something sentimental – for instance: horseshoes send good luck; bells represent marriage; and a wheel shows support. As an added bonus, we think these items look fabulous in natural kitchens: they’re a great way to accessorize wood worktops.

The trickier elements of love spoons, such as chains, are used to showcase craftsmanship, and are also commonly used to tie spoons together for a romantic dinner for two – thus demonstrating the link of the marital bond.

If any of you lucky lovebirds are celebrating five years of marriage, we think a Celtic spoon would ‘kindle’ some romance, as well as making a wonderful and meaningful gift, in keeping with the tradition of giving a present made out of wood to celebrate this happy milestone. Or, if you want to give a somewhat more lavish wooden gift, what about one of our solid wood kitchens?! Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a big slab of solid oak, after all…

Yes, we’ve got love on the brain today, and we’re sending it all to you – hoping you’re all happy and well!

A very good day to you, timber aficionados!

A full stave ash worktop in solid wood kitchens

Life is a bowl of cherries with full stave ash

Some people LOVE to make a statement, but if you’re feeling a little bashful, not to worry – your worktop can do it for you!

Everyone ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ over our fabulous full stave worktops. A stylish addition for solid wood kitchens, our advanced construction techniques mean that these babies appear to stretch on and on and on, flaunting stunning features unique to each timber species without interruption.

As you’ve probably gathered from the name, full stave worktops contain solid wood ‘staves’ (or planks) that run the entire length of your work surface. These solid wood worktops use splendid 90mm wide staves for an extra ‘full’ look, giving the impression of one gorgeous piece of continuous wood. Each stave is scrupulously bonded under high pressure with a small amount of glue, to give you a work surface that is smooth, sturdy, and – to be quite honest – really rather scrummy.

Stunning full stave oak looks magnificent. Cupcake, anyone?

Our magnificent worktops come in seven delectable species, from gorgeous and traditional oak to oh-so-sumptuous wenge. From A to Z (that’s ash to zebrano), our entire range of timber is of the finest quality and harvested from sustainable sources.

Tempted by spectacular full stave? We don’t blame you. These cheeky chaps shout luxury, and you can pack the ‘wow’ factor into your solid wood kitchen with any of the following timbers: natural oak, prime oak, iroko, American walnut, maple, zebrano, wenge and ash.

Got full stave worktops and dying to sing their praises? We’d be mighty thrilled if you’d share some pics with us on Twitter and Facebook!

Ta ta for now,
