We will cut your thin oak floating shelf from wide American White Oak stock, which is selected for its clean grain and seamless beauty. Planed square on all sides and finished by hand in a subtle, satin wax oil that beautifully enhances the grain. All of our oiled oak slimline, thin floating shelves are handmade to order. Use them to display your favourite ornaments and keep your must have books close to hand. Even fill an alcove with them for masses of practical yet beautiful storage.
We make our slimline floating wall shelves in a range of depths and cut them to your specified width. Our thin oak shelves are suitable for solid walls, plasterboard walls and dot & dab walls. We produce this shelf in 20mm thick solid oak. For each of our types of slimline oak floating shelf we can provide widths from 20cm to 150cm. Please note that with thin, solid oak shelves you can sometimes see an amount of bowing down the length of some shelves, this is more evident in longer lengths and we will use stock that reduces this where possible. The tolerance that we allow for this is +/- 5mm per/m.
To order, simply select your fixing type and shelf depth. Then enter your measurements into the width box to calculate the shelf price. Add to your basket and we’ll do the rest. We cut your thin oak floating shelves to the exact size you specify. We pre-drill the mounting holes as appropriate and carefully finish the shelves by hand. Our team then send your order out to you with all the necessary fixings for simple home installation.

Depths from 120mm up to 190mm are available with our thin oak wall shelves. Our multi wall floating shelf brackets are supplied and all shelves are pre drilled.
Dot and Dab Wall Shelves
Utilising our multi wall floating shelf brackets you can also fit this shelf on to Dot and Dab walls. The longer thread section ensures a secure fixing into the solid portion of a dot and dab wall. Fixings are included and all shelves are pre drilled.
Depths of 120mm and 190mm are able to be fitted to plasterboard walls using our multi wall floating shelf brackets. All fixings needed are supplied and the shelves are pre drilled.

We also supply our thin oak wall shelves without fixings so you can use your own traditional brackets. (Please note this means we will not pre-drill any holes or supply any fixings if you choose this option).
