This shelf is made of black walnut with a live edge. It’s attaches to the wall using screws in the wall and a key hole slot on the back edge of the shelf. The antlers are epoxied on the bottom and only give the allusion of holding the shelf up. I used a lacquer finish on the wood and a spary acrylic finish on the antlers to protect them.

Instillation was a little tricky because the screws needed to be screwed in enough to hold the shelf tight to the wall.
