Every reclaimed wood floating shelf is selected and re-worked with you and your home in mind. These pieces are reclaimed from generations past and re-purposed for your future. Images shown are a representation of the piece you will receive. Keep in mind, these are authentic reclaimed pieces of wood here, no two are the same! Nearly each and every piece is inspected and sniff tested by our German Shepherd Dog, Bear.

EACH SHELF IS ROUTED TO CONCEAL THE HARDWARE and the holes are pre-drilled. Simply mount the hardware level and into two stud locations and slide the shelf on the hardware.

Wood Origin
These reclaimed wood floating shelves are sourced from beams salvaged from historic barns throughout the Eastern United States dating from the 1700's to the early 1900's. Popular locations include Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Ohio and Kentucky.

Each and every shelf is unique with many grain variations, knots, checking, worm holes, nail holes, etc.

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.

2 inch thickness x 8 inch depth x 24 – 96 inch width (custom sizes available)

Thickness and depth can vary up to 1/2 inch but are generally within 1/4 inch

Unfinished, Oiled, White Washed, Early American Stain

The first settlers in America selected trees on site to construct their barns and homes and out-buildings. Today, individuals love to make use of this reclaimed wood when building or remodeling. The history of the piece adds to the ambiance of the area. The wood used in this manner comes from barns, factories, houses, stables, mills, and more, and many pieces are hundreds of years old. What makes this wood truly unique and highly coveted?

Reclaimed lumber pieces are truly one of a kind. The different species underwent decades or centuries of weathering and wear to obtain their current appearance, or “patina”. As a result, each piece is unique, and the wood varies by where it was first obtained and how and where it was used in the structure. The settlers rarely discriminated when it came to the wood used for the structure, what they had available on their land was generally their only option, so a person could find many varieties of reclaimed wood all coming from the same region.

Additionally, reclaimed wood typically offers more variations that are no longer seen in wood species. For instance, as trees in the past were allowed to grow to their full potential, the rings observed in this timber tend to be much closer together than seen in newer pieces. These pieces often have more knots and other markings from their use that make the piece unique and give it charm.

Lastly, if a person is fortunate enough to know where the wood came from, the piece becomes an interesting topic of conversation. We do our best to provide everyone with a backstory on where their piece originated. When someone asks, you can not only explain what it is, but also provide information on where it came from and what made or makes it special. That simply doesn’t happen with pieces that are mass produced today.

    Beth Huckaby
  • "Love love love these shelves! They looks so great, hold a lot of weight, and are very easy to mount on the wall. The simple brackets look very nice and make it really easy to set up and get into the wall. I got an extra set of brackets to let the long shelves hold a bit more weight and I'm glad I did! Looks good too :) Love it! Get them!"
