The design for this piece was inspired by a beautiful yew tree that grows in our local woods, here in Cirencester. Long prized for its natural strength, flexibility and longevity, yew was the wood of choice for English longbows in medieval times.
Our Yew Tree Shelf may be designed for more peaceful and practical purposes, but it is also made to last and will provide you with a striking shelf unit that will support up to 80kg of your favourite items for many years to come. The horizontal branches are ideally suited for candles, ornaments, plants, and larger sized books. This enables us to offer this design in central and corner variations. For a corner design the branches on either the right or left hand sides are turned through 90 degrees to give an even greater depth to the design – shown above in a right hand corner variation.
Handcrafted to order and shipped worldwide, the Yew Tree Shelf is available in seven stunning finishes. Shown above with a bark edge and our standard oiled finish, you can also choose from square or waney edges (the latter has the bark removed) and a dark oil stain or limed wax finish. Please see the photos above for examples of each of the combinations available.
All of our self-assembly units are shipped in safely packaged kit form, complete with everything you’ll need to put your new shelf together, including easy to follow instructions.
