Recovered and repurposed 100 yr. old + redwood is used for creating this very functional corner shelf. Our family uses it in the kitchen as well as the office for keys, glasses, pencils/pens and the like. The old-growth redwood is just fantastically beautiful. A light oil finish is hand rubbed on the smooth, hand sanded piece. This item makes a great gift that is totally unique and timeless. Thank You For Looking!!!
