ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Our custom made seven-spear wall rack is made by a Master Cabinet Maker and is the perfect way to display your collection of African Spears and other African Weapons. The piece measures 52” tall, 37” wide and is 7” at the deepest point. There are seven slots for spears and enough room behind the spear shafts to display African Axes (shown on bottom shelf) and African War Clubs (shown on top shelf). We make this so that the spears tilt slightly back to make sure they do not fall forward and further support them by cutting a small, round hole into the bottom shelf that lines up with a half-moon cut-out along the front edge of the top shelf.
We use African Iroko, one of the most beautiful exotic woods found on that continent or anywhere else for that matter. Iroko is a very hard wood with beautiful, pronounced open graining. This wood exhibits holographic (similar to the reflective part of a credit card) properties, as portions of the wood will change color and appearance depending on the viewing angle. This is one of our favorite wood species to work with due to its stunning graining and striking appearance. If you would like to receive a sample of African Iroko scroll down to our “Samples of Exotic Woods” section and simply order one.
Mounting these racks is very easy as the back features an innovative, recessed hanger bracket that allows for flush mounting using the two screws provided. The weight of the rack and the items you place in it will give it a significant heft. For that reason, we only recommend securing this piece into wood studs or wood. We include simple hanging instructions supported with step-by-step photos that will enable (even the mechanically challenged) you to hang your spear rack in less than 15 minutes. The only tools you need are a stud finder, a drill and a level (all of which we can send you if you promise to send them back).
This is a spectacular piece that will provide you with a lifetime of viewing enjoyment. If you like the idea but want something built to your specifications give us a call.
