Here at Osborne Wood Products we love to see all of the unique applications of our products. One of our products that has proven its versatility over and over again is the corbel. Our various sizes and styles of corbels make them ideal for any number of projects.
Today, we will take a look at photos submitted by Mary W of Idaho. Mary chose three different sizes of our Hand Carved Grape Corbels: The Barcelona Corbel with Grapes (Part #8057), the Carpi Corbel with Grapes (Part #8003), and the Venice Corbel with Grapes (Part #8017) – all in rubberwood.
Mary says, “The dark “black” on the corbels is actually the same stain as the brown kitchen cabinets, and is 3 coats followed by a spray of polyurethane. This is a great example of how rubberwood takes stains differently, so I’d suggest trying the stain out on the back of the piece before doing the entire project. In this case we loved the dark, loved the contrast, and are so very glad the rubberwood took the stain as it did. Lucky us!”
Mary added two of her corbels at the range vent; one on the left and one on the right. She also placed corbels at the breakfast bar, under a glass shelf, and under the china hutch to bring her design together. The various sizes fit perfectly with her placement of the corbels. Beautiful work Mary! Enjoy your corbels!
