ZimBOARDS Black Walnut 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 then saw them into thick wood slabs. These thick slabs are air dried for a year or more until they’re kiln dried and ready for use. Our wood is not bland commercial lumber but rather thick boards full of interesting eye-catching character all of which is sourced locally from Southeastern Pennsylvania. All ZimBOARD Shelves are made by skilled Lancaster County Craftsmen.
WOOD - Black Walnut is known for its rich coffee brown color tones and contrasting lighter sapwood. “Shelf end” edges reveal growth rings while the front Flat-Edge exposes the beautiful edge grain. 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 available 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 is 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.
