Magnet had used do some which were 900mm wide - and double edged - intended
for use on island units. I expect they still do them. You can always cut one
edge off if you want it slightly narrower to go against a wall.
Hmm, I mean (I think!) depth - wall to front edge, height - 38mm or so,
and length - 3m or so. Maybe I do mean width!! The dimension between my
gut and the wall anyway! ;-)
I want that order of dimension to run a workbench in my shed around two
walls, to take my PC, radio gear etc. 600mm doesn't leave me much space
to rest my head on!
That's what I did in the room which I use as an office. The side with the
computer is made from a 900mm double-edged worktop, with about 60mm cut off
where it goes against the wall. The other side - which doesn't need to be so
wide - is made from a 600mm single edged worktop - plus an upstand made out
of the bit cut off the other side.
Just had some new benches done at work, peninsular (breakfast bar)
worktop with the second edge cut off....Any good supplier (magnet or
wholesale supplier of laminate tops) will have something, probably from
I live near Bath and I found a local company that makes worktops /
counters for shops etc. There must be similar in other parts of the
country. They were able to manufacture exactly what I wanted,
with little or no waste.
They made up some worktops of the exact width I wanted, with
rolled edges on 2 sides where neccessary etc.
The price wasnt too bad as I recall, and they were better quality
than the ones available from the sheds.
They had a vast array of laminates and turned the job round in a couple
of weeks. If you are interested I may be able to dig out prices/contact
