Ash Corner shelves are supported by two discreet, yet sturdy, matching wooden battens (included in the price) which simply attach to the wall for the shelf to sit on. Please see our Corner Shelf Fitting Instructions for full details.
Ash corner shelves are available as 200mm, 300mm, 400mm or 450mm squares as standard and any design style of your choice. If you require a more specific size or have an alternative design in mind we can produce this for you for no additional cost.

Free Bespoke Services
We offer a completely free bespoke design service so that you can design your shelves precisely to your tastes. We can style the corners and edging, and add cable-holes or cutouts to fit around fireplaces, walls or wooden beams – just let us know what you need by completing the Special Requirements box on ordering.
We can round the corners of your shelves. Radius corners can be applied from 20mm to 100mm in size. Alternatively, we can apply a straight cut to the corners. These clip cuts can be angled to your specification. Obviously we can apply the corner designs to either corner or both depending on your needs.
We also offer a range of edging profiles: A small ‘pencil’ rounded edge, a larger rounded edge, bullnose or chamfered. If you require edging please remember to let us know which of the three sides you would like it edged (front, left & right).
If you desire, we can also position holes within the shelf to allow you to run cables through. Again, please let us know where you would like the holes positioned and the size you require. Some people just want to run the cable through, while others need to be able to fit the whole plug.
You may require some form of cut-out to fit the shelf around a corner, fireplace, wooden beam or other feature. This is no problem for us, we are happy to help. This is all part of the free bespoke service we offer you.
All Floating shelves are pre-drilled to accept the concealed mounting brackets. As standard, we centre these holes 100mm from either end of the shelf (for shelves over 1.2 metres we will add an additional hole/bracket in the centre of the shelf. However, if you would like us to reposition the holes to avoid water pipes, electric cables or other obstacles please let us know and we will position them perfectly for your needs.
When placing your order, please remember to include the details of your bespoke needs in the ‘requirements box’ before checkout, or your shelves will be supplied square-edged.
If you require any design outside of these usual bespoke services, or have any questions at all please email us your plan or call us.
Tools you will need
1. Spirit level
4. Tape Measure
Step One – Safety (very important)
Use a wire/pipe power detector to ensure that there are no electrical cables or water pipes where you intend to position the shelf. You do not want to electrocute yourself or flood the house.
Step Two – Vertical positioning of your shelves
Use a tape measure or your spirit-level to mark the vertical position for your corner shelf with a pencil. Your mark should be for the top of the batten/bottom of the shelf.
Step Three – Horizontal positioning of your shelves
Use a spirit-level and pencil to mark the horizontal position of your corner shelf. Remember that these lines will indicate the top of the supporting battens and bottom edges of the shelf.
Step Four – Drill holes into battens
Use a wood bit to drill screw holes through each batten.
Use the supplied timber battens only.
Step Five – Mount the battens to the wall
Position the first (longest) batten to the wall, with the top edge underneath the horizontal mark line. Use a masonry bit to drill slightly through your pre-drilled screw holes (keeping the batten perfectly level at all times). Once all holes have been slightly drilled remove the batten.
Use a masonry drill bit to drill your holes and insert suitable rawl plugs into each hole.
Position the batten back in place and use a screwdriver and countersunk screws to attach the batten to the wall.
Position the second batten, ensuring that it is level with the first and is level with the pre-drawn horizontal line. Attach to the wall in the same manner as the first batten.
Safety – Ensure you use long sturdy screws and applicable rawl plugs. These will be taking all the weight of your shelf and its items.
Step Six – Secure Shelf to the battens.
As your corner shelf is only supported on two sides, it is essential that the shelf is secured to the supporting battens. This can be done in one of two ways. The cleanest and easiest way is to use a strong wood glue between the top of the batten and the underside rear edges of the shelf.
Alternatively, you can screw up through the underneath of the battens, through to the underside of the shelf. If usng this method, make sure that the screws go all the way into the batten but DO NOT screw through to the top edge of the shelf.
Repeat all of the above steps for any additional corner shelves.
Painting the battens
Your battens will be supplied sanded and finished to the same standard as your shelves. However, some customers prefer to paint them the same colour as the wall to make them more discreet.
If you intend to do this, please lightly sand before applying the paint. Also, if you have used countersunk screws as suggested, cover the heads of the screws with wood filler first and leave enough time for this to dry and then sand away any excess.
Then apply one or two coats of base coat and finish with an emulsion or gloss that matches your wall coloring.
Ensure you paint the battens BEFORE securing the shelf to the battens to make painting them a lot easier.
About Our Shelves
All our Shelves are produced from the highest quality American and European Hardwoods. Our shelves are 100% solid hardwood – not laminated or veneered.
We can produce your shelves to virtually any design. If you need anything slightly different from what you see on this website, please contact us and we will try our hardest to accommodate you.
Your shelves are completely made from scratch exclusively for you in our workshop in Cornwall. Kiln-Dried planks are sawn, planed and sanded to a smooth 240grit finish.
We also offer a popular bespoke service completely free of charge. So if you would like straight cut or radius corners, a rounded or chamfered edging applied or need holes cutting to allow access for cables we can produce it for you. Simply call us or email your plan.
Finally, we will coat the shelves with 3 layers of the highest quality protective oil, wax or stain of your choice. If you wish to paint or varnish your shelves instead, please let us know and we will supply them to you unfinished.
Our Wall shelves with supporting wooden, or chrome, brackets are an ideal solution for shelves that will be mounted on a plasterboard or dot and dab wall.
Remember – we do not sell inferior ‘wood effect’ veneers, laminate, MDF or finger-jointed shelves. All of our products are the real deal – pure solid hardwood, made to perfection.
