The Reclaimed "Rad" Shelf Kit (165mm width)

7 reviews

The Kit

This is our standard reclaimed scaffold board, turned in to a ready-made shelf kit. This means it's cut to size, finished in a select range of options, and with brackets included (hanging, propped, or floating), all boxed together.

This "Rad" shelf sits between our "Full Scaff" Shelf Kit and our "Half Scaff" Shelf Kit in terms of width, and so is in effect a three-quarter width shelf. It's the perfect size to sit above a radiator and turn an otherwise uninteresting fixture in to an exciting feature.

Who knew a radiator could be made to look so nice??

Item Specifications

This listing is for a hand sanded reclaimed board, with three oiling options available (see below). The board can be purchased with either our propped or hanging brackets, or with a set of floating brackets (in which case the back edge is rebated and drilled to allow for floating brackets to be inserted and for the board to sit flush against the wall). Two brackets and wall plugs are included as standard, except for on the 5ft and 6ft sizes where for all bracket types three brackets are provided instead of two.

Grade: British Standard, kite-marked (highest grade available)
Material: Wood (pine or European whitewood)
Dimensions: 165mm wide (however we can cut to different widths if you require), 38mm thick, length as per options above.
Brackets: Included (see above)
Item No: SK02

Oil options

- None: Does what it says on the tin. But no oil, and no tin, in this instance. Ideal for those who prefer to oil the board themselves.
- Danish Oil (colour - natural): This is a traditional oil which will help to bring out the natural grain of the wood whilst giving it a satin/gloss sheen.
- Danish Oil (colour - antique): This oil has a slight stain in it to give the wood an antique appearance whilst giving it a satin/gloss sheen.
- Danish Oil (colour - jacobean oak): This oil has a slight stain in it to give the wood a darker appearance similar to antique oak, whilst giving it a satin/gloss sheen.
- Flamed with Danish Oil (colour - natural): This time we give it our signature "flame" finish, where we lightly scorched the wood with a blow torch to highlight the grain. We then apply danish oil in a "natural" option to bring out the grain further giving it a satin/gloss sheen.

Corner options

- Square: The corners are left square as on the original board, although are very slightly rounded in the sanding process.
- Rounded: Here we round the front corners off with a jigsaw, giving a lovely gentle curve at each end (as shown in the main photo above). There is a £5 charge for this service per shelf (i.e. both front corners rounded). To request this, please add the "rounded corners" option below. You will need to add the quantity to match the number of shelves ordered.

Please note

- Longer lengths are available, please enquire if you are would like a size longer than 6ft.
- Because the item is a reclaimed natural timber, the product you receive will be slightly different to the photos above, and may have various dents, cracks, and knots.
- We make sure that all of our boards are carefully selected so that they both look great and are structurally sound.
- The photos are a good representation of what you will receive but each board will be slightly different to the next.
- The colour will also vary according to the screen it is displayed on.
- The wall plugs may not be suitable for all wall types. Please choose a plug suitable for your wall or contact us for advice if unsure.
- Cow picture not included. Jack loves it too much.

The perfect Rad shelf

A brilliant way to dress up a boring radiator. Great, chunky, rustic shelf with bags of character. Easy to fit the secret brackets. Top stuff!

Just the job!

I came across The Scaff Shop whilst searching for reclaimed scaffold boards to construct raised beds in a garden, and was blown away by the recycled shelving. I wanted a mantel shelf to go above my newly installed log burner and chose the rad shelf as being the best size for the job. The 'flame' finish is beautiful and really enhances my room. Service was quick, efficient and very friendly. Would highly recommend!
