A beautiful natural edge ash shelf that displays numerous channels along the edges from the boring of the emerald ash borer, the beetle responsible for the succumbing of the ash trees in our region. This shelf is unique, with a touch of rustic simplicity. Add it to any room to bring a touch of the outdoors in. Constructed using a hybrid form of mortise and tenon joinery for a strong, clean seam. Mounts easily to the wall via keyhole pockets at back spaced on 16" centers.
Measures 24" long x approx. 3-1/2" deep of shelf surface (4-3/8" to wall) x 4-1/2 to 5-5/8" tall
**The wood used to make this product was harvested either on our family farm or a private woodlot within a 50 mile radius. We primarily harvest trees during the winter, when the ground is frozen and there is lesser chance of damage to the forest floor. This, too, is the time all our little critter friends are hidden away in their winters haven.
Trees are selectively cut using the “worst-first” method, and gingerly drug out with the help of a logging cart and our team of Suffolk draft horses, or low-impact tractor pulling. Logs are then taken to the farm’s sawmill, milled into lumber, and put into a solar kiln to dry.
Once the lumber has reached the proper moisture content it is turned into beautiful, functional products for all to enjoy! We intentionally select out lumber with beautiful character in the grain, so each piece has a unique appeal.
**we use only petroleum-free, natural oil finish.
