Live Edge Walnut Display Shelf. Can be used to display keepsakes, collectibles, altar or meditation items.
This walnut display shelf was made from live edge lumber. Each shelf was inspired by the grains and color of individual pieces of walnut.
The walnut shelf sides were selected for the contrast between the sap wood and the black walnut heartwood.
The shelves are individually fitted to match the contours of the cabinet sides as well as the wood grain color of the verticals.
All of the joinery uses glued dadoes and rabbets carefully hand fitted without the use of screws or nails.
This unit is 16" X 5 1/2" X 32" with six shelves. We like shelf displays that are not evenly spaced but also allow the display of taller items and in addition we extended the display width of the bottom shelf to accept wider as well as taller items.
When we saw this particular board in the lumber racks we liked the color and contrast of the live edge. By re-sawing this particular section of the tree, it allowed a book matched pair of sides.
This shelf will showcase your treasured articles in any home setting including contemporary modern decor.
While the unusual wood is captivating, it still allows the beauty of the contents to come forward!
