We at Barnwood Designs have sought to make our livelihood a blend of a number of different elements; we are, of course, woodworkers, but because of the nature of the wood we work with, we are also historians and collectors of rare antique lumber. Our Appalachian Heritage Woodsman’s Reserve represents the best of our work on all fronts; it is some of the rarest and highest quality lumber we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Harvested in the early 19th century from the remote and rugged Tug Hill Plateau region of upstate New York, these planks of wood served the burgeoning dairy industry in the Westernville, NY area for nearly 200 years. The hay stored in these barns fed cows for the nation’s first cheese factory, in Westernville. Now, we’re pleased to share it with you, in the form of rugged floating shelves with a distinct early American character.
Here, we have these wonderful floating shelves in 2″ by 10″ dimensions, available in three custom-blended colors. Please select the length you require, and the color you’d like best.
Let us know whether the shelves will be installed by your contractor or carpenter, or whether you would prefer to install them yourself. We recommend having your floating shelves professionally installed for maximum strength and durability. If you choose to have your contractor install the shelves, please pass along his or her information as you make your purchase; either at checkout or via email.
For light-duty and decorative purposes, we do offer a Do-It-Yourself option at a cost of $95. In selecting this option, you receive a shelf with an embedded metal strip which serves as the hanging system. While we can offer only limited customer support for DIY-installation shelves, the kit does contain a comprehensive set of hanging instructions which have worked for thousands of customers through the years. Included are instructions for all standard wall types.
