The Addison bracket is actually a spin-off of our Tahawus bracket (no longer offered). The Tahawus had some design elements that we feel came up short. Once it was redesigned we felt retiring the name was also the right thing to do. As with the Tahawus, the Addison bracket adds a super strong and stylish industrial touch to any decor! As with all of our brackets and corbels, it is a simple and true blacksmith-made bracket. Great for kitchen open shelving, as counter or bar top corbels or enhancing your existing furniture. 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 and strengthen pre-existing furniture, cabinetry, door casings and architectural elements, or use them in your next shelving design idea.
Item Description: All-steel construction using actual rivet assembly. Hand-hammered beveled arc ends and decorative rivet set-finish. using a 3/16" rivet and spot welded to provide additional strength. Available in 4", 6”, 8", 10” or 12" shelf-depths. These are a symmetrical bracket so 4" may be the length of both the support arm and mounting arm. Bracket frames are made from 1/4" x 1" flat stock and the gusset (brace) from 1/4" x .75" flat stock. 1/4" screw hole diameter and beveled.
4"x4" bracket is ideal for 4.5-7" shelf depth.
6”x6" bracket is ideal for 7-9” shelf depths.
8”x8" bracket is ideal for 9-11” shelf depths.
10”x10" bracket is ideal for 11-13” shelf depths.
12"x12" bracket is ideal for 13"-16"
All brackets can be used with deeper or shallower shelves but where strength and appearance really work is as listed above.
Load capability for a pair of these brackets is modestly set at 150+ lbs. Your screws and mounting surface will ultimately determine what you can support!
- Paint-ready: Item is built and prepped to our specs prior to receiving a paint finish…cleaned with alcohol and wrapped in paper. They are not “sealed”. Items selected for “paint-ready” may have some meal discoloration in varying shades of grays, blues and browns (rust staining). None are guaranteed nor unlikely. Rust stain is not rusting metal. However, if left unprotected, they can and will soon show signs of rust in humid locations. Re-prep prior to painting by wiping entire surface with a light rag or T-shirt, lightly damped with isopropyl alcohol. Paint once dry.
- Flat Black: 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: An opaque paint finish that highlights the evidence of the blacksmithing process. This finish is highly durable. Can be used as an interior or exterior finish.
Fine Print: We go to great lengths to deliver a consistent, precise product. However, minor measurement differences can be expected as each bracket is made by hand, one at a time. Hammer and anvil marks may be evident and are a normal, beautiful effect 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.
