Air Dried Oak Floating Shelf *Aged*

Made from air dried European oak and handcrafted in our North Yorkshire workshop. Supplied 14cm or 18cm deep and around 35mm thick for solid walls.
  • Air Dried Oak Floating Shelves


    Our air dried oak floating shelves are handcrafted from the finest quality air dried European oak timber. Available in a standard size of 14cm / 5.5" deep. Shelf thickness will vary between 30-35mm. As with our fireplace beams we’re also offering a large variety of colour finish options. We use only the finest wax polishes and oils ensuring a top notch finish every time.


    Each air dried oak shelf is completely unique and may feature a range of distinguishing features such as cracks and knots. For a shelf with no cracks we recommend our solid oak floating shelves or rustic oak floating shelves because these are made from kiln dried oak.


    Price is per shelf.


    Each air dried oak floating shelf is mounted using Hafele’s concealed shelf supports which also come free with your order. They are suitable for fixing to stone, brick, breeze block and stud walls where timber can be located and fixied into. We professionally machine holes in the back of the shelves to accept the concealed supports.

  • Check out our installation guides below… Please note, all installations are different and we can only offer a general guide.

    7.5″x5.5″ beams do not come with fixings.

    Please Note:

    We cannot take any responsibility for any incorrect installations or damage caused during the installation process. Returns are not accepted for items that have been installed.

  • Everything we manufacturer is professionally finished in-house using only the finest products. We achieve this fantastic range with wood stains which penetrate deep into the wood followed by a top coat of wax polish for protection.

    Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee exact colour matches to existing furniture. Please use these colour samples as a guide only, as oak is a natural product colour variation can be expected.

    The following swatch provides a great example of how unfinished oak can vary in colour.

How It’s Made...


  • To order a bespoke length, please order the next length up and leave a note in checkout to cut down to your required length. For more bespoke alterations please send us a message and we will be happy to provide and accurate quote. Bespoke request will make the item non-returnable.

  • Yes all of our shelves come with fixings for either solid masonry walls or plasterboard walls depending on the product you select. We have products made especially for pasteboard walls so if you are fixings solely into plasterboard walls please make sure the product says "for plasterboard walls" in the title.

  • For shelves suitable for solid walls, as a general rule, 2 fixings can hold up to 35kg of weight including the weight of the shelf. Our plasterboard walls can hold up to 20kg between 2 fixings including the weight of the shelf. Shelf depth, wall type, condition of wall and distribution of items can affect the weigh capacity.

  • The amount of fixings your shelf will have will depend on the length chosen.

    Shelves under 4ft will come with 2 fixing points.

    Shelves 4ft-5ft will come with 3 fixing points.

    Shelves 5.5ft-6ft will come with 4 fixing points.

    Shelves 6.5-7.5ft will come with 5 fixing points.

    Fixings are usually around 5" from each end and then any subsequent fixings evenly spaced between. (This is not guaranteed) If you need to make sure the fixings are in a suitable position to enable you to fit to timber studs, please get in touch and we will be happy to adjust fixing positions on your order.
