Wood coloring can change dramatically when finishes are applied. For example, we have many pine pieces that appear brown when oiled. We also have many that will look reddish when oiled. Yellow pine tends to end up more reddish, and white pine looks brownish but that is not always the case. Other factors that impact appearance are the age of the piece, the environment in which it spent its life, and the overall condition.
Each and every shelf is unique with many grain variations, knots, worm holes, nail holes, etc. To attach as a floating shelf, it comes with a hidden hanger and each piece is routed out precisely to properly fit the mounting hardware which IS INCLUDED. You will simply need to drill out holes in the back of the product. The holes should correspond with the bracket location on the walls. They require a 1/2" drill bit. We can fulfill nearly any custom request – from sizing to colors to wood characteristics.
Sourced wood material comes from barns and other structures dating to the late 1700s through early 1900s in Pennsylvania and Eastern Maryland.
