Before the current kayak-craze, lakes and rivers were explored and traversed by adventurers using canoes. These watercraft were larger, heavier and could be a bit unwieldy and thus required skill to maneuver, especially for the solo operator. Today the Lighthouse Man salutes that vessel of the pioneering spirit with our line of handcrafted Canoe Shelves. Each set is built from solid hardwoods and hand-painted using high-gloss enamels in your choice of six colors. Additionally, the front-edge of the bow, stern, and all of the shelves are stained teak in color. Each set is also unique as a result of the varying patterns and colors of the grains in the all-natural woods that we use. The exterior of the bow and stern are composed of walnut while the boat interior and all shelves are prefinished (UV cured) birch. All of the shelves are dadoes-machined into the back of the unit for additional strength. Finally, the front-edge is wrapped in leather lacing to complete the authentic look of the canoes of years gone by. The result is a sturdy piece of nautical furniture that is both functional and nostalgic and built for years of enjoyment. We are pleased to offer our Canoe Shelves in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate any interior space that you wish to accent with this piece of nautical décor. Use these Canoe Shelves to showcase your own outdoor memorabilia or other life s treasures. Whether for an outdoor professional or a weekend adventurer, our Canoe Shelves are a perfect addition to any home or office space.
