ZimBOARDS Ash Live 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 – Ash is a lighter wood and often has a brown/gray figure in its heartwood creating contrast and character with a live-edge that is typically smooth. “Shelf end” edges reveal growth rings while the front live-edge reveals the natural curvature and texture of the tree it was sawn from. 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. Live-edge shelves may vary in depth from between 10” and 12” due to the natural curvature of the natural edge.
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.
Finished thickness - 2"
Width - 30” & 48” are standard sizes – custom size requests are welcome.
Depth – Our live-edge shelves may fluctuate between 10 and 12” due to the natural curvature of the natural edge. Flat-edge Shelves are offered in 8”, 10” and 12” depths.
Finish – All shelves are fine-sanded then spray with a clear coat / catalyzed varnish.
