This piece is highly unique and stylish in nature. The Open Acanthus bracket contains the intricate style of our handcarved products to the next level. The design is simple, containing a single acanthus leaf, however, this leaf is fairly large and is designed to add flavor to your woodwork designs. This bracket is open, so it does not stay flush against the corner of your shelving or mantel. Leaving space between the bracket and your shelving makes it unique compared to other bracket or corbel options.

 

This bracket is 6 inches from bottom to top, and still sturdy enough for an extended countertop. With the tip of the leaves placed on the bottom portion of your shelf, the leaf extends to 6 1/8 inches away from the corner of the shelving to give it full support. With an additional 3 3/4 inches of width, this bracket is perfect for adding a professional and unique look while still remaining structurally sound.

 

This piece comes in your choice of four different wood types, specific to your woodworking needs. It arrives sanded and unfinished, allowing you the option of staining it a color to match your designs. This item is handcarved, making all the more unique from its countertops. Pair with our other Acanthus leaf options and complete your designs today!

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 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.

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.
