This OOAK beautiful rustic floating shelf has been made with reclaimed, recycled and/or upcycled materials.

*We were given full permission by the current claim owner to reclaim this wood.

This is truly a One Of A Kind rustic wood shelf as it can not be duplicated.

Size: 31" x 5.5" x 5.5"

Weight: approx. 14 lbs.

Description: This historical piece of old growth lumber was reclaimed from a circa 1860/70's Gold Mining Camp located in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. This area is rich in history and the California Gold Rush is one such event. The Gold Miners flocked here to mine gold, silver and other valuable metals in the mid-late 1800s. This particular gold mine and settlement was established in the 1860's. This wood piece was found on site in "as-is" condition and shows the old paint, nail holes, knots, saw marks and splits that give it a fabulous rustic patina. It looks fantastic for the 140 years it's been weathering in the mountains. Solid and ready to hang.

Surface: sanded to a semi-smooth finish.

Finish: Minwax Natural & Ebony mixed stains. Three coats of Varathane Satin Polyurethane (heavy use formula).

Hanging hardware: two heavy duty keyhole hangers installed at 24" on center.

Accents: none as shown, but I can add some of the original rusty nails to the front of this shelf if your planning to hang something on it.

Additional pics upon request.

This piece has been signed & dated on back.
