This wall shelf is mounted using a hidden ledger so it appears to "float" on the wall. The face is made from a single solid Black Walnut plank so the grain pattern wraps around the corners. These shelves are custom hand-made from hardwood lumber (NOT MDF) and finish-ply (wood with veneer) in my shop here in Oregon. All materials are purchased locally, and these shelves are clean, classy, and modern.

Specs & Features:
- Shelf size is 5" deep, 24". wide, and 2 1/2" tall (custom sizes available)
- Safe working shelf load is 25 - 30 lbs (greater loads if items are set closer to wall)
- Single Solid Black Walnut Plank used for sides and face...no MDF!
- Shelf is clear-coated with satin lacquer
- Each shelf has unique grain pattern
- Mounting ledger and screws are included in listing
- Listing is for 1 shelf

Mounting notes:
- The mounting ledger must be screwed into at least 2 wall studs
- Mounting requires a drill, and a level. A Tape measure and studfinder are handy but not required.

Custom orders are available, so just let me know if you need multiple shelves, custom sizes, or different wood species. I make many different types of furniture and fishing rod racks, tying benches, and more! Please check out my other items. Thanks!

Frequently asked questions about BSWoodworks

The thinnest I can make a shelf with a floating mount is 2".
It depends on size and quantity, but generally between 2-4 weeks. If you need a rush order, I can accommodate 2-weeks or less for an extra $25 per item.
Yes! All my items pictured are unstained, natural black walnut, but a darker stain may be applied for an extra $20 per item (Sorry, I don't do black stain!)
The process of woodworking takes a substantial time investment to produce a quality product. There are many steps that must be done thoroughly and carefully. Rushing produces a sloppy product!

Also keep in mind that you are not my only customer. There may be up to 15 orders ahead of you, so I have to take care of them first! I am thankful for every order and will do my best to get yours out as soon as possible, which is generally 3-4 weeks.
I make my shelves up to 10 inches deep. Anything deeper and the shelf's weight rating will drop significantly (think leverage).
