This is the second in a series of what I call "Rustic Industrial Functional Art". Made of iron pipe
and reclaimed wood, this shelf is a blend of form and function and will complement any home or office decor whether it be in an urban or rustic setting.
The pipe and fittings are 3/8" (inside diameter), and are all new. Each piece has been hand sanded and finished with a satin black oil based paint, giving it a smooth, rich finish.
The shelf on the other hand is not new. In fact, it is made from a beat up, old, weathered, worn, cracked and scarred piece of cedar that I was lucky enough to find on a recent "treasure hunt" at an old lumber yard. Once destined to become sawdust, it has now been hand sanded, and treated with two coats of water borne polyurethane stain giving it a beautiful golden brown finish. For additional protection, and to further enhance the beauty of the grain, I also applied two coats of water borne polyurethane satin finish sealer. I don't know the history of this piece of wood, only time and nature can tell, but it must have been an interesting one. How it came to look like this I can only imagine. I hope when you see it, you will imagine as well.
Hardware for mounting on wood or drywall is included, with the mounting screws finished to match the pipe. Please let me know if you intend to mount it on a cement or brick wall, and I will include the appropriate fasteners.
I am proud to say that this is my original design. I am also flattered to find that my designs are now being copied by others.
I use only reclaimed wood which I hand select based on its unique characteristics. I look for worn or weathered edges, distinctive graining, cracking, nail holes, and other features which make each shelf truly one of a kind. While these characteristics may vary from shelf to shelf, each is guaranteed to be equally as beautiful and unique as the ones shown above.
I am always happy to discuss custom sizes and configurations. Just drop me a note.
Dimensions are as follows (approx.)
Overall height: 9"
Overall width: 18"
Shelf depth: 5-1/2"
Overall depth: 9"
When installed, the rear of the shelf is positioned 3" from the wall so it can be used to display larger sized books if desired.
