Thick Floating Wood Shelves

Rustic meets organic modern in our handmade-in-the-USA farmhouse shelves.
3" Thick Shelves

Our ultra-thick floating wall shelves add visual interest to your living spaces - and serious storage and display space, too. They are available in your choice of:

  • Walnut
  • Alder
  • White oak
  • Pine
  • Maple

Holding 30 to 40 pounds each, our custom floating shelves come in 2 heights. These shelves are 3" thick and are handmade in our woodshop in Olathe, Kansas. The hidden bracket nested inside the shelf itself is invisible after installation for a clean, bespoke look - and you can easily mount them yourself, too.

Wood Shelves from J Thomas Home Add Character to YOUR Home

The grain and look of different wood species means no two custom floating shelves are identical. This is why we love working with a natural product!

At J Thomas Home, each thick floating wood shelf we produce is made to order and handcrafted from one of six wood species of your choosing. Each type of wood possesses its own unique characteristics to help you achieve your favorite home decor style.

With any natural wood, you can expect natural imperfections like knots, knot holes, and grain textures. But not every wood species is prone to these beauty marks. For example, if you like the idea of these lovely blemishes, you might opt for pine or rustic alder. But if your goal is a perfectly smooth, creamy look, you might choose maple or rich walnut.
