Private Client, Hertfordshire

This country house kitchen provided the space for a very large central island. To enhance the size and give it more interest, Cawdor suggested that a bonded edge be incorporated to give the top the visual weight that would emphasise the beauty of the stone.

The edge was achieved by bonding a strip of similar 30mm thickness to the underside of the top and working the overall thickness to provide the appearance of a thick solid top. It required the careful blending of the two stones to achieve the effect.
