Baltic Birch Plywood Alcove Shelf
Alcove shelves provide a clean-lined storage solution without the bulk. These shelves are designed specifically for alcoves, niches, or any nook with wall surfaces on three sides, even between existing kitchen cabinets!
Shelves slide onto a concealed wooden cleat (one at each end of the shelf) that is simply attached to the wall with a couple of screws. The torsion box construction of the shelf coupled with the cleat system make an extremely strong shelf suitable for books and other heavy displays, without sagging.
A NOTE ABOUT MEASURING YOUR ALCOVE: Please provide a width measurement at the front of the alcove as well as the back. Walls are often not perfectly at 90 degrees, so this measurement can vary! I will make the length of the shelf slightly shorter than the SHORTEST dimension of the alcove to insure that it will fit completely within the space. This slight gap between the shelf and wall surface will give you some wiggle room on the installation. Any gaps between shelf and wall can be sealed with a paintable caulk for a seamless look.
Shelves are 11 inches deep and approximately 2 inches thick. Custom depths are available upon request. Length is up to you--please include a measurement of your alcove/ niche width in the "Note from Buyer" upon checkout!
