American Made, Hand Forged Iron Corbels and Braces from the Adirondack Mountains

The Tahawus Bracket adds a stylish industrial touch to any decor! This design is a simple and true blacksmith-made bracket. Tahawus, named after an old iron ore mining town in the Adirondack region (Tahawus - pronounced 'tuh-hawz' ) is now a ghost town. Great for shelving, fireplace hearth, or as counter or bar top. Use them under cabinets or to add support to table legs, or to accentuate practically any other right-angle in your home! It is amazing what forged steel brackets can do to beautify pre-existing furniture, cabinetry, door casings and architectural elements or use them in your next design idea.

Listing is for one (1) bracket.

Shelf Bracket Finishes:

We offer a variety of finishes at no extra charge on all brackets. Shelf brackets are available with linseed oil, beeswax, clear-coat, paint, or you can elect to have them as unfinished. All brackets, whether finished or not, are pre-treated with isopropyl alcohol to remove moisture and trace rust.


provides no barrier to rust or moisture, but allows you to paint or finish your brackets however you desire. Rust may form over time, depending on the level of moisture your brackets are exposed to.

Linseed Oil

is our most authentic-looking finish in a deep, dark tone. This finish is translucent, so the character of the metal is still visible. Linseed oil is ideal as an interior finish.


is another authentic finish, but is completely transparent, leaving the character of the metal visible beneath. This finish is also best for interior environments.

Clear Coat

is a transparent paint and modern finish and is appropriate for all applications. Clear coat provides an authentic look since the character of the metal is fully visible throughout. Can be used as an interior or exterior finish.

Flat Black

is an opaque paint finish that provides a soft and even appearance. This finish is highly durable. Can be used as an interior or exterior finish.

Satin Black

is an opaque paint finish that highlights the evidence of the hand-forged process. This finish is highly durable. Can be used as an interior or exterior finish. Minor measurement differences can be expected as each are made by hand, one at a time. Hammer and anvil marks may be evident and are a normal effects of the process. Unseen surfaces may have evidence of rivet and/or welding but this won't hamper the use or strength of the piece.
