Our hand-crafted to order wooden shelves, live edge wooden basin tops  and window sills are an excellent inclusion to add an element of natural beauty with a rustic yet modern  feel.

Our live edge oak basin shelves  and window sills are paired perfectly and compliment our other products such as our bespoke kitchen islands, rustic wooden worktops, beautiful river tables and table tops and our hand-crafted modern desks.

We emphasize the natural features of the desired live edge timber counter top such as the knots, grains, cracks and striations using our signature resin infill, and provide a series of natural earthy® styled edging choices to create character and elegance.

I wanted a live edge oak shelf for my bathroom to sit a basin on and came across Earthy Timber. They were very helpful answering questions I had, and I knew I was in safe hands. You can truly bespoke to your taste, whatever size or shape, and even request specific features such as knot, bark, resin fill etc. An item like this will be pricey, but if you appreciate true craftsmanship and want a talking piece then don’t hesitate!

Hand crafted oak Window sill in modern contemporary surrounding


We offer a series of water resistant finishing options that are essential in protecting and preserving your bespoke natural wood bathroom counter tops, shelves and window sills.

Our high quality, smooth finishings come with several different benefits and so it is important to think about where your shelves, counter tops and window seats are being used. We offer either a clear shield like lacquer, colour enhancing water-based oil finish or completely waterproof finish, ideal for wet and busy bathroom and kitchen environment.

Natural Wood Shelves in Oil Finish

Our high-quality water-based oil treatment is most noted for its colour enhancing effect. Unlike lacquer, the oil penetrates the layers of the timber itself and enhances the wood grains, earthy® tones and textures to add a deep rich combination of earthy® browns and golds – all whilst keeping a perfect balance of moisture throughout.

Our oil finish is water, heat, food acid and alcohol resistant. Because of its deep penetrating effect, this finishing offers several layers of protection throughout your bespoke live edge oak shelf or walnut window sill. Despite this we always recommend that you take care when placing hot mugs, plates, glasses and bowls on our oil finished surfaces. In the event of damage occurring, a fine sanding and reapplication of oil may be necessary. This process may also need to be re-applied over time to keep your bespoke live edge walnut shelves and window sills properly maintained. More information regarding the maintenance of your oil finished natural wood shelves and window seats may be found on our maintenance guide.

Natural Wooden Counter Tops in Lacquer Finish

We use a low-VOC water-based lacquer finish that offers high resistance against staining and scratches of the waney edge wooden shelf or counter top. This finish is ideal if your bespoke earthy® wood shelf or window sill will be frequently exposed to moisture. Unlike oil, our lacquer finish does not penetrate the deeper layers of the timber, but rather acts as a thick transparent protective shield. Lacquer also does not enhance the colours and grains and is ideal for those wishing to preserve and maintain the original earthy® wood tones, textures and grains. Our lacquer also comes with a non-yellowing feature and UV protection.

Whilst we believe our lacquer finish works excellent as a protective barrier against damage and corrosion, the lacquer may wear down over a few years and so may need to be re-applied. Our lacquer is very easy to reapply by sanding down your bespoke live edge solid wood shelves and seats and re-applying a layer of lacquer. Further information about maintaining your wooden shelves and window seats and sills can be found in our maintenance guide.
