Starter Units & Add On Units
These are assemblies that are made of solid wood
"Uprights" and "Freestanding Kits"
Click here to see how our
units are assembled
Uprights are manufactured from clear, Solid Hemlock
or Douglas fir. Two 1-5/16" x 1-5/8" stiles have a 3/8" wide
x 5/8" deep plow the entire height to receive shelf end
channels and are drilled with 3/16" diameter holes on 1"
centers to allow for shelf adjustability. Stiles are to be
locked together with two or more cross members mortised into
the stiles. All components are to be machined smooth with
all outside corners eased. Uprights are available in clear
protective lacquer, tinted or custom finishes.
from 3/4"thick Solid Pine. This kit includes 4
boards and hardware. Two boards connect uprights at
the bottom and two connect at the top to create a
Starter Frame or Add On Frame. Bolts and special
embedded barrel nuts are used to securely bolt
frames together. A simple "Allen" wrench is all that
is needed to screw the boards together with the
uprights (Allen wrench is included).
are manufactured of 3/4" edge-glued and finger-jointed pine.
All shelf materials are machined to accept formed aluminum
extrusions shaped to fit into a routed slot on the end of the shelf
and to rest on the shelf support pins. End channels are flush with
our below shelf faces.
Typical shelving sizes are 12"deep x 36”, 42” or 48"wide unless
noted otherwise. Shelves are sanded smooth and clean. Finished
shelves are available in clear protective lacquer, tinted or custom
Professional Cabinet or Furniture makers will tell you that the
Hallmark of quality in ANY piece of furniture starts with the
drawer. If you want to verify the quality of a wood desk or
furniture piece, open the drawers. Look at how the drawer box is
assembled. Because the drawer is constantly moving and taking
abuse it will be the first item to breakdown.
The cheapest drawers are made
with butt joints or slip joints. Only the finest craftsmen will
use German Dovetail construction. It is the most durable joinery
in woodworking. Some manufacturers will use a combination of
dovetail and butt joints. Our drawer boxes have German Dovetails
at all four corners.
Next look how many "Sides" there
are. Our drawers are called a 5 sided drawer box. That is
because the drawer itself is manufactured as a separate box.
Then the drawer front is attached afterward. If the drawer front
is actually the front of the box, you will eventually pull apart
the joints. Every time you pull on a drawer you a putting
pressure on the front joints of a 4 sided drawer box. A 5 sided
drawer box like ours eliminates that problem.
||We cannot "Guarantee" exactly
how much weight our shelves will hold.
As you can see by this dated photo, our shelving is built to hold a
tremendous amount of weight. However, we do not recommend holding a dozen men
on our shelves!
Lundia shelving will deflect if it is
overloaded. If you are going to load heavy books, we recommend
shorter shelving lengths (i.e. 24", 30" or 36"widths). A 42" or 48"
shelf may show slight deflection on heavy loads.
We have included photos below to
show you how our shelves can deflect based on the shelf width
and how much weight. All the shelves below are 12" deep for our

Notice that there is still NO deflection in the shelf
(Compare the line of the yellow string to the shelf)
IMPORTANT: We do not guarantee
the weight capacities or how much weight will make your shelf
deflect. This is to give you a general idea. Since wood is a
natural product, every shelf can and will react differently to
