Wood Building Process

The quality timber we source locally is not only sustainable but exhibits a clear rustic character which is the hallmark of quality craftsmanship.

At Ashley Moore Furniture, it has been our goal since day one to build bespoke rustic shelves from carefully selected kiln dried timber only. We do this because we understand how important it is for the handmade wooden shelf to match moisture content in the average UK home – ensuring a long-lasting product that is also covered under a lifetime warranty.

Another reason we do this is because it minimises movement within the shelves which may occur due to the natural drying process within the confines of your home. Once you handpick your desired timber from our online store, our skilled craftsmen will hand finish the shelf using a wax that never leaves any artificial marks.

With our rustic shelves being custom made from 100% natural rustic pine, every shelf that is delivered to you is completely unique in terms of texture, grain pattern and other physical attributes. We have an eye for detail and obsess over distinct quality and unadulterated wood for your rustic shelves – which is why we do our best to preserve the most rustic attributes in our timber including natural sawmarks.

To provide for the most solid and robust shelf supports, we get all metalwork done by our in-house expert metal fabricator. Nothing is more pleasing to the senses than a seamless combination of wood and metal – in fact this signature style has become a trademark at Ashley Moore Furniture.

Finally, we use the highest quality natural beeswax which leaves a fine but completely natural-looking finish on all our bespoke rustic shelves. Applying wax is absolutely critical to the process because it not only protects the fine texture of the timber, giving it a water-resistant finish, but also intensifies the grain pattern – providing for an eye-catching and timeless look that ages quite gracefully over the decades.

However, if you’re looking for a unique and distinct wax finish to better suit your tastes, we offer a selection of [number] different wax finishes. We also recommend that a clear wax coat be applied at least once a year to prolong the life of your rustic shelf and give it that clean and pristine look which can be savoured and appreciated each day.

If you have any questions about how your bespoke rustic wooden shelf is crafted by hand, we’re always here to answer them and also get better acquainted with your needs and preferences.
