Our shelf supports and sleeves are made from premium-grade alloys – the same state-of-the-art CNC (computer numeric control) lathes and milling equipment we use to manufacture Veritas planes and other tools to exacting standards.
Accurately turned and machined from solid bar stock, the shelf supports are available in two styles: traditional, with an hourglass-like form, and contemporary, with a tapered paddle shape. Made in our own shop, they are available in brass or stainless steel with a tumbled matte finish or in steel with a black finish.
The supports measure about 7/8" long and project 1/2". In most hardwoods, they can be inserted directly into a 1/4" diameter hole, or installed in the matching sleeve that fits a 3/8" hole. In softwoods, to prevent the end grain from crushing under load, sleeves should be used with the supports.
Made in Canada.
