ZimBOARDS Black Cherry Flat-Edge Floating Shelf

Our shelves are “single-board” Pennsylvania hardwood and full of beautiful figure and color. We salvage logs from urban trees that were removed due to storm injuries or threatened a structure. We saw these logs into thick wood slabs then air dry for a year or more (all of our wood is kiln dried). Our wood is not bland commercial lumber but rather thick boards full of interesting eye-catching character. All of our wood is sourced locally from Southeastern Pennsylvania and our shelves are made by skilled Lancaster County Craftsmen.    

WOOD – Pennsylvania Black Cherry is known for its beautiful red/brown color tones and tight grain. “Shelf end” edges reveal growth rings while the front Flat-Edge expose edge grain adding to the shelfs overall character. Our shelves are always single board and full of character, not glued up pieces of wood.   

SIZES - We offer standard floating shelf lengths of 30” and 48” but can accommodate other sizes. Flat-Edge shelves are sawn in depths from 8” to 12” (custom size requests are welcomed).

LUSTROUS FINISH – Each shelf is sprayed with a clear coat - post catalyzed varnish that brings out the woods character and leaves a lustrous smooth surface of protection.  

STEEL BRACKET - Each Floating Shelf is routed and drilled for its hidden steel wall bracket (steel mounting bracket included). Our brackets are made of ¼” cold rolled steel with welded ¾” posts the shelf slides onto, pushed flush to the wall. The steel shelf bracket has countersunk screw holes drilled every 4” to cross over as many wall studs as possible – fasten only to wood wall studs or masonry.  Shelf installation is easy with only simple tools required – installation instructions are included with the shelf.
