Here's your chance to custom order your very own wormy American chestnut floating shelf made from reclaimed barn wood. 8" Wide, 1.5" thick, Length to choosing!...Price of Shelf is $19.95/ foot! I personally look over our inventory looking for cool knots & worm holes so to add instant character with a primitive feel! To give it that truly custom look, I can round the edges, cut round the corners, or keep them square. Just let me know what you desire via a note on your invoice.
The colors in these shelves naturally range from deep chocolate to honey amber. I also am able to stain to any color you desire!
The whole piece will be planed flat & jointed square. The 8" wide top, underside, & three visible edges will be finished with 3 coats of Minwax Oil-based Clear-Satin Spar-Urethane. The wall edge is unfinished in order to make for a flush fit. If you desire, I can also leave the whole piece unfinished.
These aren't your ordinarypiecesof wood and it takes a while to make these shelves...We go as fast as we can, but please understand that your piece is made to order and also needs at least a week for the Spar-Urethane to cure for shipping, please allow 2-3 weeks for fabrication & delivery! Mounting instructions are discussed below.
Dimensions: Shelf is 8" Wide & 1.5" thick, made to whatever length you desire up to 6 ft! (5ft for international shipping) The quantity you buy will determine your length...for example if you buy a quantity of '3', you will receive a 3 foot Shelf! If you desire multiple shelves, simply buy the total quantity in feet you desire and contact me regarding your lengths of each shelf. Of Course, I know that most shelves are not always desired in nice, round numbers, in that case, you can always contact me with your dimensions and I'll create a custom quote/listing just for you!

The American chestnut was once one of the most important trees in the Eastern United States, occupying about 25 percent of the hardwood canopy in Eastern forests. But by the early 1930's, the tree was virtually eliminated by a fungus from Asia, called the chestnut blight. It is estimated that nearly 5 BILLION American Chestnut Trees were killed by the fungus!!
American Chestnut is no longer harvested and can only now be obtained through reclamation! Save a tree and make your next project from highly desirable, reclaimed Chestnut! You'll be glad you did!
Mounting Instructions: I have received several emails on how to mount these shelves...if only you knew how easy it is!!! I have found that the best (and easiest) way to install these shelves is using a "floating style" mount. You can see how it' s done by clicking HERE The website is for mantles but the process is the same for floating shelves.
If you don't have a brick foundation, then simply mount the lag bolts into the wall studs...3/8" lags will work fine for this application if you mount them at most 16" apart. Use 1/2" lags if the lag span is 24" or more! Make sure you have at least 4" sticking out of the wall, so purchase your lag lengths accordingly. The hardware & adhesive needed for installation is cheap and available at any hardware store. Hope this helps!!
