The Athens Bar Corbel features hand-carved curves and scrolls. Measuring 12 ¼” tall, 8” deep, and 3 ½” wide, this classic corbel adds subtle detail and dimension to your home.


This elegant piece was Osborne’s premier corbel in 1995. Originally, the piece was hand-carved, then sent out to be power carved. We later found that the best quality could be attained only with careful hand carving to keep the lines crisp and the curves smooth.


  • Features vertically-mounted keyhole openings on back for easy mounting.

  • Available in ten wood types, including a paint grade wood.

  • Hand-carved. Variations in carvings may occur.

  • Sanded to 150 grit and ready to finish.


This corbel enhances any space with its classic, organic design. Like many of our Classic Corbels, it features an ‘S’-shaped scroll carving with a slightly offset center, creating a piece with the perfect amount of detail.


The Athens Bar Corbel measures 12 ¼” x 3 ½” x 8” - one of our most popular sizes for supporting countertops, islands, and bars. It also works well beneath range hoods in the kitchen, supporting shelving or cabinetry, or in a creative installation that you design.



8020 - Athens Bar Corbel

Build a Beautiful Bar!

The corbel’s height and depth are similar to our Verona Classic Corbel (#8080), as they add strength and structure to the piece. However, this piece’s slim width makes it a bit more delicate and discreet.

Corbels create instant beauty and sophistication in any space. In practical uses, they provide support for countertops, shelves, and more while elegantly transforming the look of your home. Our wood corbels showcase the grain and color of wood, resembling beautiful pieces of art.  Furthermore, the selection between intricately carved or simply designed corbels can dramatically alter the atmosphere of a room. Osborne Wood Products produces our world-class corbels in many different styles, materials, and sizes to meet your design needs. 


When placing corbels beneath a countertop, focus on the depth of the corbel. Corbels supporting a countertop should measure at least ½ of the overhang’s depth. However, these corbels gain visual appeal with larger dimensions. Corbels that measure ⅔ or ¾ of the overhang’s depth provide both better looks and extra support. For example, a countertop with a 12 inch overhang requires supporting corbels that are at least 6 inches deep, but feel free to use 8 inch or 9 inch corbels to enhance the countertop’s appearance.


Corbels used to brace shelves must measure at least ⅔ of the shelf’s depth in order to properly support the shelf. However, it is recommended to support a shelf with corbels measuring ¾ of the shelf’s depth, as this creates better support and visual appeal. For example, a shelf that is 12 inches deep requires supporting corbels that are at least 8 inches deep, but 9 inch corbels provide better looks and support.
