English cherry mantle shelf

English cherry mantel shelf

Made from a board of Kent-grown cherry, this mantel shelf really shows off the qualities of an English bit of timber – wild, unpredictable and bursting with character. This home-grown stuff took a bit of an effort to machine (unlike its straight-laced American cousin), but I’m really pleased I chose to ‘shop local’.
