I remember the first bar that I built for a client. It was a beautiful cherry piece that sat in front of a massive cabinet that looked as though it came straight off the set of Cheers. Well, let me tell you, at that time Osborne Wood Products did not carry corbels. So, I had to, in my own crude way, hand carve 11 corbels for that bar. Please understand what it takes to carve a corbel. You carve one side, then the other side. Then you have to carve and mold the front. Sounds easy, right? Well, it took me almost 3 weeks to make those corbels from start to finish. Oh, if I could have only picked up the phone and just placed an order. Do we not have it easy nowadays? ~Contributed by Charles Head, Beautiful Interiors

Corbels for countertops and shelves can create instant beauty and sophistication. Many customers who have installed our corbels for their countertops or shelves are amazed at how elegantly they can transform the look of their home. Wood corbels are like beautiful art that can showcase the grain and color of wood to its best advantage. And the selection of intricately carved or simpler wood designs can dramatically alter the appearance and feel of a room.  Corbels make a significant artistic statement and often serve as the room’s focal point.

If you intend to place corbels beneath a countertop, the key dimension you are focused on is the depth of the corbel. Corbels to be used under a countertop should be at least 1/2 of the depth of the overhang which it will support, and look even better when they are 2/3 or ¾ of the depth of the overhang. For example, a countertop with an overhang of 12 inches requires supporting corbels that are at least 6 inches deep. Using 8 or 9 inch corbels provides extra support and makes the corbels a bit more visually appealing.

Corbels used to brace shelves must be at least 2/3 of the depth of the shelf which they will support, since the corbel will be the shelf’s sole means of support. It is preferable to have the corbel be 3/4 of the depth of the overhang, for better support and visual appeal.  For example, a shelf that is 12 inches deep will require supporting corbels that are at least 8 inches deep, but corbels that are at least 9 inches deep provide better support and visual appeal.
