Ausable brackets are made from heavy 1/4" (.250") thick x 1" wide mild steel flat stock. Comes with pre-drilled and beveled screw holes. Generally two screw holes for shelf support...one screw hole for smaller sizes (under 5.5"). The support depth is measured from wall to out extent of support arm. Forge-fired textured and wire-brushed for that ages old appearance (see "unfinished" close-up photo for appearance)! Three-way beveled bracket ends. High quality, American forging.

*Drywall screws included to quickly install and not meant for heavy loads and high-traffic locations, Seek heavier fastener options...lags and wood screws and paint to match.
-shelf support measurement is taken from the inside of the outer bracket lip to the face of the wall mounting arm. All brackets have a 5" high wall mount arm surface.
**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 effect of the process.
SHELF BRACKET FINISHES:
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”, however.
Items selected for “paint-ready” may have some metal 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 show signs of rust in humid locations over time.
Re-prep prior to painting by wiping entire surface with a light rag or T-shirt, lightly damped with isopropyl alcohol. Paint once dry. Paint-ready brackets can be powder-coated by your vendor of choice.
Forge-fired items have a mildly tortured and rustic appearance and texture (considering it is heated at over 1200 degrees Fahrenheit). The texture/appearance is unpredictable with random and unique markings that occur naturally within the process.
Items selected to receive forge-fired finishes are fully heated, wire-brushed and finished with our most authentic and rustic finishes including linseed oil. Clear-coat is also offered on forge-fired items as is an unfinished option that is cleaned with alcohol and wrapped in paper.
All finishes are available with either texture.
