Solid Oak Timber

 

To make these oak floating shelves we select top quality, air-dried oak. Each shelf is cut to size and finished in our workshop. This leaves in lots of natural, rustic timber characteristics and features. Mother Nature’s own stamp of approval.

In this timber you can expect to find splits, cracks, knots, shakes, waney edges, bows and twists along with sticker shadows and machine marks in keeping with the rustic style. These are the qualities that set our shelving apart from the rest. And due to the nature of solid wood every shelf will be different. Truly unique. One of a kind. Rustic timber. You can expect to see some movement within the oak as it settles in to its new environment. Please note that placing your item above or near to a heat source can cause this movement to exaggerate the timber's natural features further.

All sizes and weights given are approximate. As we only use natural, solid timber, measurements can change slightly from one piece to another.

 

3 Fine Wax Finish Colours

 

To finish these chunky wood shelves we use your choice of one of our supreme wax polishes. The finish is professionally applied with the highest attention to detail. And as the wax soaks into the different grains and features it enhances their look and brings them to life. The colours are:

  • Sunkissed Oak
  • English Oak
  • Smoke Oak

We also have our unwaxed option, ideal if you have your own finish to apply:

  • Natural Oak

When viewing on screen colours can look different from one screen to another. This makes it less reliable than seeing the real finished timber before your own eyes. Because you want the perfect colour for your home these finishes are available to purchase as small samples.

Strong Fixings & Easy Installation

 

These floating wall shelves come supplied with all the fixings you need. With this fitting method we would recommend fixing to solid wall types only. With the help of a professional joiner or skilled DIY enthusiast they can be fitted to timber frame walls as well. Please note we are unable to guarantee the shelves if they are installed into alternative wall types.

To help you with the installation we also have fitting video guides available. Click on the fitting tab (if viewing on desktop) or go to our YouTube Channel.

As this item is made from air-dried oak, it is not suitable for insetting into, or sealing onto the wall, doing so may cause the timber to move in an unnatural way. Please note that we cannot guarantee the shelves if installed using any alternative fitting methods.

Timber Full Of Unique Rustic Feature

 

These shelves are handcrafted from the very best quality solid oak timber. The timber is air-dried, and will therefore continue to dry out as it settles into its new environment. You can expect some movement to occur during this time.

 

Handmade In Our Signature Rustic Style

 

Solid wood contains loads of beautiful rustic character. And we just love it. That’s why we make our shelves to show it off. In each piece of timber you can find features such as knots, cracks, splits, twists, bows and shakes, along with sticker shadows and machine marks in keeping with the rustic style. All being different and unique from one piece to another. Placing your shelf above a heat source can cause movement within the timber which may exaggerate these natural features, particularly splits, cracks and twists.p>

But that’s not it. The main feature is the stunning wood grain running through the timber. And the growth rings are plain to see on the ends.

 

Hand Finished In Supreme Wax Polish

 

Because these features are what really define our shelves we like to make them stand out even more. To do this we use a wax finish. This is carefully applied to the timber in our workshop, enhancing all the natural features and wood grain.

Wax not only makes the timber look good, but it is also very durable. You can easily wipe away spillages. And cleaning is very simple. Just wipe with a clean cloth and warm water then leave to dry. But never use harsh chemical cleaners.

You also have the choice of an unwaxed option which is ideal if you have your own finish to apply.

 

Future Maintenance With Wax Care Packs

 

We have wax care packs available to keep your shelves looking their best. These comprise of a small tin of wax, a piece of sandpaper and a cloth for application. They are a great to use every few months to make the shelf look brand new all the time.

They’re also brilliant for fixing damage. A small amount of wax will fix a scratch. Or bigger damage can be fixed with a quick rub of the sand paper. Then use the wax to cover any bare timber and buff away. Order your wax care pack here.

 

Concealed Floating Shelf Brackets

 

Using our concealed floating shelf support brackets these floating shelves are very simple to fit to your wall and takes no time at all. We recommend that these shelves are suitable for solid walls only. A professional joiner or DIY enthusiast could also install these into timber studs, this would normally require drilling new holes into the back of the shelf to suit where the timber studs are positioned. Please note that we are unable to guarantee the shelves when installed into alternative wall types.

 

Fitting Your Floating Shelf

 

Full instructions are included, but here is a quick guide:

 
  1. Decide where you would like to position the shelf then locate the drill hole centres.
  2. Mark where to drill the holes onto your wall with a pencil.
  3. Drill the holes, insert the wall plugs and then screw the fixings into place.
  4. Use a small wrench to make any minor adjustments to the bracket position.
  5. Push the shelf onto the fixings all the way to the wall.
