Dimensions: 24”L x 4”W x 3”H

Materials: Peruvian Walnut & Abalone Shell

This floating shelf is constructed entirely of solid peruvian walnut and features 40 individual circular abalone shells inlayed on its face. The varying colors and holographic nature of the abalone shells combined with the deep rich tones of the peruvian walnut shelf create a truly harmonious and highly decorative addition to any interior decor.

The piece easily mounts to the wall via a cleat system in the rear of the shelf, which allows the piece to float freely on the wall.

No stains or dyes were used in the making of this piece and all colors seen are the natural colors of the wood.

Nice work! At first I thought it was back lighted with holes. I really like the contrast of the dark wood with the abalone.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
