Another large piece from our Acanthus Leaf Collection, This beautiful corbel easily lends its strength to mantels, granite countertops, and more. Far from imposing, though, the delicate scrolling pattern and meticulously carved Acanthus Leaf elegantly downplay the breadth, creating a look that is sleek, yet substantial. With the leafy design on all sides, this hand carved piece is ornate enough to draw anybody's attention towards it.

 

This piece is fairly large, with a height of 14 1/8 inches and a width of 8 inches. Sturdy enough for shelving and large enough for room decor, this is the optimal piece for a diverse amount of uses. Available in several different wood types, it arrives ready for you to stain it your color of choice. Pair with other items in our Acanthus Leaf Collection for a complete and matching style.

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.
