PRODUCT DETAILS

REAL WOOD

Our products are meticulously crafted from genuine, high-quality solid wood sourced from American trees. Each piece of lumber was once part of a living tree that spent decades growing, uniquely for you. Our dedication to excellence means that we exclusively use solid wood, and avoid any veneer, particle board, plywood, vinyl, or laminate.

WHITE OAK

White Oak has become an architectural staple in recent years. The beige, grey, and white tones along with straight and neat grain lines make White Oak a universally appealing wood in furniture and flooring. Due to the increased demand for its use in making liquor and wine aging barrels, White Oak is also becoming more scarce.

BOX STYLE

In order to achieve the mantel thickness and avoid the excessive weight of a solid beam, we take 4/4 solid wood boards, 45° the edges, and biscuit join them together as a hollow box with seamless face and ends. This also allows us to mount them using a heavy duty french cleat that installs securely into studs.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

High quality, beautiful wood shelves. I had a contractor install them, but he said they were easy and made of good material. I searched for weeks for shelves on Etsy, West Elm, etc and these were the best value by far. I wanted the white oak, but they were a little out of my price range so I went with the maple and am so happy with it.

Very pleased with the shelves. The package was packaged very well. Arrived 4 days sooner than expected! Couldn’t find instructions but didn’t need them after all. Was confused about the extra hardware. But Found a video on you tube and wife and I got them up in less than an hour! Shipping was free! Thanks Dakoda Love, we love your shelves!

Great quality shelves made in the USA. The mounting brackets are solid and have lots of holes to allow for very flexible mounting to studs. I had to drill through tile (tile drill bit) and got some bigger screws. The shelves in the pic are natural maple. Very true and couldn’t be happier. Will be ordering more.

I had been viewing these shelves for about a year. I wanted a floating shelf that I could hang stemware on, so I emailed Dakoda Love. Between pictures and measurements I had taken, their guys got the job done. It arrived just in time for my husbands birthday and it is absolutely beautiful. It is nice to support a family business with high quality craftsmanship in the USA.

SOLID WOOD DISCLAIMER

All living things, like people, have traits that make them unique and different from each other. True respect between persons is found when we pause and learn to recognize and appreciate the positive qualities of these differences. Similarly, every tree and every piece of wood, even if from the same tree, can have its variances. This is one of the greatest qualities of solid wood over a veneer or laminate.

A true connoisseur of quality solid wood can easily identify between a lookalike and the real thing. As solid wood is our passion, we embrace these characteristics like wood color variance, alternating grain patterns, natural streaks in wood, wormholes, and sound knots which do not affect the integrity of the wood, but rather add to the authenticity and uniqueness of the final result.

When possible we try to use single wood boards if the product size allows. In cases where we are limited by the size of the available wood, we will join boards together to create the full sized product. Joining different boards, from different trees and parts of trees, can result in color and grain variance within a finished product, similar to the common look of wooden tabletops and flooring.

In the world of fine furniture we honor and appreciate these characteristics as beautiful attributes of real solid wood.

LEAD TIMES

We have designed our manufacturing system and pre-built stock limits to meet the goal of delivering high end custom wood products to our customers within a matter of days. Depending on the number of building and finishing processes required, our typical production time ranges from 2 to 10 business days. Shipping times depend on shipping service and location, free ground shipping is usually 2 to 5 business days within the US.

In most cases, customers can expect to receive their products around 5 to 10 business days, or 1 to 2 weeks, of placing their order.

Even though our lead times are very fast for custom level quality, we understand that we live in a world of instant gratification, so just know, some things are still worth the wait.
