Our entire range of solid wood shelving is made from specially chosen, premium quality timber. Solid oak shelves are produced from sustainably sourced European hardwood before transportation to our workshop in the UK where it is finished by our team.
Oak makes an ideal material for solid wood shelving. A robust yet elegant timber, oak is blessed with a characterful grain pattern and plentiful tonal variation - all of which create a beautiful surface that is perfect for use in the home or office.
All our wood shelves are available in a range of widths - from 300mm up to 1500mm - with a standard depth of 200mm. This particular range of solid oak shelving is available in two thickness options - 30mm or 40mm - allowing you to choose between a 'slimline' or 'chunky' aesthetic. All are supplied with square edges and are sanded to a smooth 150 grit finish before 3 coats of HABiol Oil are applied, enhancing resilience and creating a pleasing appearance.
Each shelf is constructed from a series of 40mm wide staves, which are finger-jointed together and then high-pressure glued to create a lasting finish. This construction balances optimum strength with an attractive look that brings out the personality of this favoured wood.
All shelves are supplied pre-drilled, ready to be mounted onto specialist floating shelf fixings. Each solid oak shelf is supplied with the suitable number of brackets for its size, which are listed as follows: 2 brackets for 300 and 600mm wide shelves; 3 brackets for 900 and 1200mm wide shelves; and 4 brackets for the 1500mm wide variants. The use of 'invisible' brackets completes the appearance of these shelves, which will look impressive when mounted on any wall.
Due to the weight of solid wood shelves, we recommend that they are mounted onto either solid brick or concrete block walls; or, if mounting on timber stud walls, be sure to fix the supports directly into the studs.
Oak shelving creates an excellent look that cannot be rivalled by softwood or veneer imitations. Our shelves are crafted from only the finest raw material, ensuring that their strength, resilience and natural charm does not diminish with age. However, these shelves are manufactured from natural timber, and as such small knots and splits may occasionally be present (this is very rare, but is considered a natural development in the wood).
