This beautiful Wall Shelf is made from 8/4 Exotic Zebrawood. The shelf is approximately 30" Long x 12" Deep x 10" High. Zebra wood is imported from central Africa, (Gabon, Cameroon, and Congo). The heartwood is a pale golden yellow, distinct from the very pale color of the sapwood and features narrow streaks of dark brown to black. It is almost always quarter sawn to get the exciting alternating color pattern. It is a rare and exotic wood, used in a limited way for veneer, wall paneling, custom furniture, furniture trim, inlay bandings, parquetry, specialty items and turnery. It is also sometimes seen as stocks of handguns or in exotic guitars. In the past, it was used in Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz automobiles. Because of its hardness, it can also be used for skis and tool handles. Hidden shelf brackets are included and are spaced on a 16" center for mounting to the studs (See Picture). This piece is custom made, so the center spacing can be changed when the piece is ordered. Each individual joint is joined with biscuits and compression gluing for maximum strength and rigidity. All of the surfaces of the piece are hand sanded before each layer of lacquer is applied. There is a minimum of 9 coats of satin finish applied to bring out and maintain the natural beauty of the grain, structure, colorations and shimmer in the wood. The piece is bubble wrapped with multiple layers of cardboard protection and shipped in a carton. Shipping costs are shown in the Shipping and Polices tab. mr² Woodworking also creates custom indoor and outdoor furniture, benches, cabinets and specialty wood items.
