Kallax insert compatible cube storage rustic shelf


Shipping to United States: Free

Everyone loves cube storage because these units are just so versatile. Use a 6 box unit as a small bench, a box unit as a nightstand, or a 25 box unit as a room divider. They are solid enough to divide a room, but because of the space between them, you get to choose what goes there. You can put decorative items in a few, or populate them with inserts.

This version retains the same dimensions as many popular versions on the market, but instead of chopping down new trees, I make them from reclaimed scaffolding boards and pallet wood. It makes for a more sustainable product, you don't have to feel guilty buying one, and you'll get a unique, one-of-a-kind product. Even the March 2022 issue of Which? magazine suggests "Try to find local small businesses that use reclaimed, recycled or locally sourced".

I can also make these from less rustic scaffolding that is not as worn and can paint them or stain them in a variety of colors: https://www.vintro.co.uk/paint-colours.

My shelves are compatible with many kallax inserts you may already have at home.

Not sure of how this will look in your home or office? Message me for free samples of the wood with your address and I will get to you in about a week (samples go out every Friday).

I can make one unit with 1-6, 8-10, 12, 16, 20, or 25 squares.

I have included the dimensions down below and one of the photos has a picture of a very popular model. Some of the photos have the finished version and some just show the rough version before it has been sanded. This will be smooth enough so now one and gets any splinters… especially the little ones!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have to pay an import tax when receiving goods as your shop is in the UK?

You may need to pay import tax if your goods are valued at over $800 or more as my humble shop is located in the UK. For standing desks, the top and the electric frame will be coming in two shipments, so the overall total value of the good will be lower as the legs can enter the country duty-free.

ex: You order a complete standing desk (top and frame) and pay $1600. The legs will be valued at around $700, and the top will be valued at $900. Since shipping is included in the price for both items, I can lower the value of both items and allocate shipping fees to the top and leg frame. Now both items will have a lower value, and therefore you may not need to pay import tax.

How much weight can I put on the ladder shelves?

The shelf is robust and will hold a fair amount of weight, but not designed for extremely heavy objects. Books, bowls, potted plants, and things of that nature are all perfectly fine.

Please keep in mind I am referring above to a ladder shelf made from reclaimed pallet wood that leans against a wall. The solid bookcase made from steel and scaffolding I make can hold as much as you can throw at it.

Why is my stuff taking so long to ship?

A majority of the items are handmade and take a lot of effort. Using reclaimed material means time needs to be spent to fetch, dismantle, wash, and sand the material before I can even start a project. For hardwood projects, the wood is in a raw format which means we need to plane it so it's smooth, remove the bark, and sand, and apply several coats of oil to get it just right. If we're talking about resin desks...well, each piece of wood is unique and it takes time (72 hours or more) for the resin to set in between each pour. I don't want you to chase me, but rest assured my tiny team is doing the best we can to deliver top-quality products to you ASAP.
