Mons Cheesemongers, Borough Market display counters

 In Woodwork

This was a very specific brief and designing these was a big part of this project. I ended up making 3 winter counters then 2 summer ones. All 5 were basically the same design. The 2 summer ones are lower for the refrigerated displays to sit on. Construction was Birch wood ply and oak. The verticals are laminated oak. The central birchwood sections I got CNC routed. These were designed originally to take concrete tops. We got the recipe good for these and made one slab (see picture) but it was decided in the end to just use pine. It’s not a bad thing that they were built strong – these get hundreds of kilos of cheese piled up on them every day.
