Wooden Wall Shelves

Working in huanacaxtle or parota wood Ruben Beltran recreates an elegant style from colonial Mexico. I filled the shelves with my white Mikasa dishes and some vintage pieces and they looked beautiful… but then my practical side kicked in and I kept looking to the side of our kitchen where my most-used cookbooks sit on precious countertop space. The Diamond Hard Floor Varnish is a good choice for your floor, but bear in mind that the Varnish will darken the wood slightly. Got it. Sounds like you already built your shelves but you can get plywood with a factory finish.

It’s so useful to be able to buy custom-made shelves for difficult areas, and I’ve been very impressed by the level of service. In the meantime, with wood now available, I drew up these slightly vague plans, after measuring out again in our dining room, and took the metal to Welderman. It resists 190 proof alcohol and will build a finish that is so tough you almost can’t stain it. Have used up to 600 grit wet sanding techniques for a glossy wood finish before using the pure oil.

I am not familiar with the Melisi product that you have used but it sounds like a Varnish, this will create a seal on the surface of the wood. Wood Veneer panels and shelves are 3/4” finished wood veneer furniture board with edge banding on the edges and are available in all of the maple, oak and cherry finishes. The solid wood furniture that comes into our home is usually left in the garage for a period of time (until it doesn’t stink anymore). Each wall shelf is framed in natural wood with a cool gray interior for a modern feel.

For displaying collections, you best option might be wall mounted or freestanding tiered shelves that keep all of your valuables in a single line of vision. Choose our tall library-style shelves with a sliding ladder for a storybook feel, or our wood and metal round bookcase for a pop of modern design. They arrived as promised and I have to say that they were far easier to fit than many other shelves I have tried in the past!

I need a tough hard wearing finishe and ideally keep the light colour of the natural wood – I am thinking of using to seal diamond tough varnish. Then all that was left was to place the bookshelf and fill it up. This is a very tall, narrow bookshelf, so the best and safest thing to do is to actually attach it to the wall with a tip resistant strap If you choose not to do that be careful and make sure you keep heavy items on the bottom shelf.

Each wall shelf is framed in natural wood with alternating black interior and exteriors to make your display pop. The sealer will make the wood less absorbent and the color will be lighter than indicated on the can. The room has very high ceilings so I intentionally built the shelves higher than an average person can reach so that they didn’t look dwarfed by the height of the ceiling.

Achieving the right colour can be difficult and require a little bit of experimentation but it is fair to say that the Antique Pine or the Driftwood Stain from the Manns Pine Wood Stain may be the ones to try, they are both quite greenish in tone and so in theory the green and orange together should equal brown. This DIY Bookshelf made from the unfinished crates (finished by Yankee Bill and me of course) is perfect. This box shelf measures: 24′ length 9.5′ tall 6′ depth made from western red cedar and stained in dark walnut to bring out the rich, warm tones of the wood.

I found that tung oil is the absolute best product available for the inner bore of these instruments of keep moisture from soaking into the wood and causing possible splitting issues. Rollers make it move easily, but lock to stabilize it. The wood shelves on the metal bookcase make it feel industrial without overdoing it. Fits well in many places. Some external varnishes can be very good but we tend to recommend oil over varnish for external wood because it is inevitable that after some time the varnish will begin to break down and need removing completely.

As well as a durable natural primer it seals, blocks tannin and smells, stains wood and acts as a high-gloss varnish. I spray painted all screws with spray paint I had on hand so it would match the white and gold decor in my living room. Sealers are brush-on liquids that penetrate into the wood to limit the amount of absorption. Floating shelves (meaning any hardware or brackets are hidden), aren’t designed to hold a lot of weight.
