Our Oak Shelves are made from the finest, Joinery Grade (QB2) oak. This means that the timber will have less knots, cracks and blemishes than character oak shelves. Our oak is kiln-dried to remove moisture and lessen movement after installation and sourced from trusted, FSC certified suppliers.
Each piece is handcrafted to order by a member of our carpentry team and available in a hige range of sizes, support options and colours.
Our oak shelves are planed and sanded. Planed to ensure that they are straight and square and remove marks from machinery. Then sanded to remove sharp edges and soften the timber to a greater aesthetic finish.
We do not pre-drill oak shelves as customers will need to ensure that fixings are secured to the wall are in the correct place.
Important please note the following before purchasing;
As our Oak Planks are a natural product, each piece may be different in appearance and vary slightly in colour.
As this product is planed it can lose some of its size, please state if you require an exact size. If you are looking for a custom size beam, please order the size above what you require and specify your chosen size in the ‘Order Notes’ section of the checkout. We will ensure that it is planed to your specific required dimensions.
Oak Shelves FAQ’s
Examples of planed and sanded oak shelves:
Are your oak shelves joined or one piece?
It depends on the width or the shelves that you have ordered and our stock levels. Generally, we do not stock boards wider than 300mm / 12″. For boards wider than this, we advise that they are made up of multiple smaller boards that have been joined anyway as this will prevent the boards from moving and twisting, which wide boards are likely to do.
We use biscuit joins to create a seamless, wide shelf.
Will my oak shelf have knots in it?
Yes. However, our kiln dried oak boards, that we use for oak shelves, are supplied from joinery grade oak. They are cut from closer to the base of the tree than character grade oak, and therefore where there are fewer branches. This ensures that there are also fewer knots in the wood than other oak grades.
