Product Description

The DW 02 Bookshelf is distinguished by its special crafting and clean, practical design. The shelving has minimal vertical and horizontal parts; it uses traditional hand skills and hidden joinery methods to join the timber together and uses no mechanical fixings.

The design of the shelving unit was inspired by the grid pattern Derek Welsh observed on the workshop doors at Phantom Hands.

The shelf is available in two sizes - a smaller size with two uprights and a bigger version with three uprights. The compact shelves are adaptable, easy to accommodate and suitable for a variety of spaces, big or small. They are ideal to store books or decorative objects.

Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of Natural Teak and Dark Stain wood finishes. For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak. For the Dark Stain, a coat of water-based teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker shade. For Black Finish, the wood is sprayed with an eco friendly water based paint that leaves the grains and patterns visible.
