Oak Live Edge Shelving
This bespoke order was designed and completed in February 2021 for a clients home office in County Meath, Ireland.
Our client’s space has no windows and is a small square office. They wanted some shelving to organise things usually thrown in boxes on the floor and wanted a warm, rich wood to enhance the space. We went through lengthy consultation with our client to determine what would work best for them.
We designed this shelving wall to utilise the unused back wall of the office. The shelving wall actually made the space look and feel bigger and met the brief of creating a rich warm ambience in the space as well as providing ample storage space.
This beautiful shelving wall consists of three completely one of a kind, character filled, live edge Oak shelves. They are hung on custom made, black powder coated steel brackets. Each shelf was made using a unique live edge Oak slab.
The natural voids were filled with a Black Diamond coloured epoxy resin, chosen by the client from our pigment selection.

In addition to resin filling, the piece went through multiple stages of flattening and grades of sanding and was then finished in the top quality Odies Oil and Wood Butter. This enhanced the rich colour of the Oak and left a beautiful soft sheen finish.
The slabs all came from the same tree, which was sourced from County Wexford in Ireland. The tree was milled by ourselves in our yard in Slane, County Meath, using our own purpose built sawmill.
