When you buy a Beaufort & Dunham shelf or peg rail you are purchasing something that is specifically handmade for you. A great alternative to cupboards, our simple traditional open shelving designs are a wonderful way to display or store and are perfect for use throughout the home.

The shelves we make are available in two material types, these are Redwood timber and a composite furniture grade material called Caberwood. These two materials have differing properties, the timber shelves are slim and lightweight, the Caberwood shelving is denser and completely uniform making it perfect for larger scale shelves and peg rails. 

 

All of our shelves are broadly available in five bracket types highlighted below, these designs are either entirely our own or inspired by antique originals. These brackets are all entirely cut by hand.

Redwood Timber Products

This natural timber is 21 mm thick, is relatively lightweight and affords shelving an elegant slimline quality. Overall the finish is smooth with the grain visible in places which serves as a reminder that this is a natural material. Small natural imperfections in the wood are retained as they all contribute to the unique character of the products we make.

Wooden shelves are extremely strong but due to some possible latent moisture content, aren't particularly suited to life above a direct heat source like radiators. As the profile of natural timber can be less uniform than that of Caberwood, timber shelves and peg rails aren't available in corner or extra long formats.

Single timber shelves and peg rails can be ordered in any length up to 220 cm.

Timber shelving is available in the following depths;

14.5 cm, 17 cm, 19.5 cm.

Caberwood Products

Shelves and peg rails fabricated from this 25 mm thick composite material have a much 'fuller' and substantial aesthetic than their timber counterparts. Caberwood shelving is available in larger sizes than natural timber, can be extended beyond 220cm and can be ordered in a corner format.

Timber shelving is available in the following depths;

14.5 cm, 17 cm, 19.5 cm.
