We recently updated our kitchen bench with feature board
Many thanks for sharing your project.
What type of feature board did you use? Any tips you could offer other members if they wished to complete a similar project or perhaps things you would have done differently?
Looks great @woodalwaysworks. Well done.
As per Mitch's message, it would be great if you could please share some more information for members who might like to achieve a similar look.
Thanks again for sharing.
Good work @woodalwaysworks - came up really nicely. It's such an inexpensive (and straight forward DIY) way to bring a nice feature to a kitchen bench/island.
I'm waiting on my 63mm easyVJ panels to arrive to do mine. I have been throwing around ideas re batten cladding, bamboo, etc however given our Oak overhead cabinetry and dark splashback are already a feature we didn't want this to clash/overpower so will paint it Polar White to match the ground level cabinetry and contrast a little against the stone.
We used the easy craft 9mm feature panel boards.
Before installing I lightly sanded the veneer on the kitchen facia to take the polish off and help the glue stick.
The board’s were also bradded on. 9mm feature panel+16mm facia board+18mm cupboard backboard gave me heaps of space to not worry about a 32mm brad coming through into any cupboards or draws.
I still double checked for the pipe work leading to the sink and dishwasher.
Added skirting after painting and made a small piece of corner moulding from dome off cuts of the panel board.
to make installation easy your panels can be 5mm short +/- and this gap will be at the bottom then covered by your skirting
