Green Oak Man offers custom made solid oak floating shelves . Real Oak and cut to any length you require these shelves are completely hand made here in the UK by quality craftsmen.

We take care to produce each shelf from carefully selected timber. Our Oak floating shelves are available in European Prime Oak.

Prime Oak:  European Oak, it is a light oak colour and native to Europe. This is the highest quality Oak that you can buy and ensures your shelves have less than 15% sap wood with minimal knots which otherwise can leave rough blemishes on the shelf.

French Oak: French Oak typically is more rustic in nature with a slightly undulating wider grain and commonly more knots.

European Oak: Straighter and closer grain. Very few knots present.

Each Shelf is sanded several times until the Oak begins to shine naturally.

We then wax and polish the wood to your preferred finish.

An Oak Floating Shelf is easy to install using brackets that take care of inaccuracy when drilling holes into your wall.

Shelves can support weights between 35kg – 50kg (including shelf weight but many factors determine weight supported including shelf size so we recommend consulting with a professional if you have any doubt or talk with us directly). If you require custom positioned drill holes (for example if fitting to a stud partition wall) then please use the comments section at checkout when you order.

All Floating Oak shelves can be bespoke made to measure and we try to meet your expectations as bespoke manufacturers of oak shelving. Each shelf is made from the highest quality European prime Oak which are first planed then sanded down to 180 grit on top and bottom. This provides an incredibly smooth finish to the shelf. 2 coats of wax or polish are then applied to each shelf which protects the oak and also gives a beautiful finish by bringing out the woods natural grain.

American Oak is an alternative but has far less character than European - we have found most clients when they see European Oak will always opt for this choice of species. Unlike flimsy oak veneered floating shelves these are completely solid.

Shelf Depth and manufacturing

We can accommodate any depth shelf but shelves over 200mm depth / width may be made using 2 full stave planks which increases the stability of shelves and prevents warping in central heating environments.

All shelves are square edged but we can offer rounded or angled corners and edging details.

If you order a longer shelf (over 1800mm) or very deep shelf (250mm +) consider using more robust bracket solutions such as threaded bar and resin.


Length: Plus or minus 2mm.
Width/ Depth: plus or minus 2mm
Thickness : plus or minus 2mm.

Floating shelves are all supplied with concealed floating brackets but we also offer oak corbels that look great above fireplaces or central features..

To order simply select your length and width. We can cut timber to any length required up to 3000mm length and 300mm width. If you have extra requirements please use the comments section at checkout in the next step after clicking add to cart > checkout.

Concealed brackets - These brackets take care of inaccuracy when drilling into the wall. They make installing floating shelves incredibly easy. (These brackets are recommended on all shelves less than 1300mm (130cm, 1.3m) length and width less than 250mm)

Rebar + Resin Pack - Shelves over 1300mm (130cm, 1.3m) we recommend using rebar with resin packs. This provides far greater support to the shelf. Also recommended for shelves over 250mm width as concealed bolts tend to cause sag on front edge of the wider shelves.


Installation is super easy!

Simple Steps

Below describes the basic principle of floating shelf brackets but specific installation techniques may vary depending on shelf dimensions and other factors. Required items : Spirit level Drill (with 10mm drill bit or 8mm bit depending on the type of concealed bracket - measure brackets and diameters before drilling.) Spanner (adjustable is best here.) Tape Measure Pencil optional : Sealant for fixing shelf in place.

STEP 1: Identify where you want to locate your shelf.

These shelves are designed to fit in to Stud partitions or into masonry walls. Take care to avoid electrical wires when drilling.

STEP 2: Draw horizontal line where yoo would like the centre of the shelf to be.

We often use the shelf itself draw a level horizontal line and using a spirit level on the top of the shelf, but you can use whatever you want (long spirit level or tape measure). This will act as the centre line of your shelf.

STEP 3: Mark locations for the drill holes / brackets

Measure centre to centre of the pre drilled holes in the shelf (these are normally 700mm centres or 100mm in from each end of the shelf.

Mark the location of the first hole you wish to drill and then measure the distance that you measured from the pre drilled holes in the shelf.

Once you have marked the 2 drill holes for peace of mind hold the shelf up against the holes and check that the marked positions match up roughly with the holes drilled in the shelf.

The concealed brackets allow for some horizontal error (approx 10mm) but attempt to be as accurate as possible.

STEP 4: Drill Holes to necessary depth.

Drill 2 x 80mm deep holes for the brackets. Drill as straight as possible. Again there is room for error but ideally you want these as straight as possible. Some people use a drill guide.

STEP 5: Insert rawl plugs.

Push the rawl plugs fully into the holes until flush.

STEP 6: Screw in the concealed brackets.

The concealed brackets should be screwed in to the neck of the bolt - NOT just the depth of the thread.

STEP 7: Adjust the level of the shelf by rotating the bolts slightly.

Slide the shelf over the brackets - but not the entire way - leave enogh space to adjust the bolt with the spanner. Rotate the bolts individually to get the shelf level. The bolts are designed with eccentric holes (off centre) and this allows adjustment to the height of each bolt. Use a spirit level to check that the shelf is level. Continue to adjust until just right ! Be patient...

STEP 8: Slide the shelf completely over the bolts.

Once you are happy that the shelf is level slide the shelf all the way to the wall. You may optionally wish to add a small amount of wood sealant to secure the shelf in place and around the bolts but this is optional and the shelves will be securely held in place.

STEP 9: Boil the kettle

Sit back and admire your handy work!

If you have any doubt in installing shelves please employ the services of a professional.
