Black Oak Floating Shelves
Take the charming natural characteristics of oak and combine with deep and luxurious colouring, and you have our beautiful black oak shelves. Black oak floating shelves make an eye-catching feature for any kitchen, with a robust construction and an appealing grain pattern.
Our experienced team have years of experience working with solid wood products, and use the latest wood-cutting technology to ensure each shelf is crafted with maximum precision. To create this stunning coloration, the oak timber undergoes a special treatment, which turns the wood a rich, dark brown throughout.
Just like our black oak worktops, these shelves are make from a series of 40mm-wide wood staves, which have been finger-jointed and glued together under high pressure to achieve optimal strength. The shelves are then sanded to a 150 grit smoothness, and finished with a nourishing wood oil to enhance the grain pattern and protect the timber. These black oak shelves have a square edge profile, giving a sleek and contemporary look as our wood worktops.
Our floating shelves come with all the fittings required to allow for straightforward installation.
All of these floating solid black oak shelves come pre-drilled, and the required number of specialist floating shelf brackets are also included. For 300mm and 600mm-long shelves, two brackets are provided; three are provided for 900mm and 1200mm shelves; and four for the 1500mm-long floating shelving. These brackets are hidden by the shelves once mounted, which achieves the impressive floating effect.
Solid black oak shelves are fairly weighty, therefore they are best installed on a sturdy brick or stone wall; if you have a stud partition wall, the brackets should be fixed directly into the timber studs for maximum stability.
As with all hardwood furnishings, our black oak shelving may occasionally feature small knots of splits; though rare, these are considered appealing, natural characteristics of timber and do not affect the structural integrity of the shelves.
