I’m back in the shop for a few days, making some bike shelves. If you have ordered one from me, the first batch should hopefully be done by mid next week.

Hello all. I am getting back online after a brief introduction to fatherhood hiatus. I am reading all my emails and getting back to anyone who wrote me to order, or just for more information. If you don’t hear from me in the next couple days, please forgive me and email me back so I can get your shelf order moving. I will be going into the shop tomorrow to start on a batch.
Many people have asked about sizing for their bikes, as well as how the shelf attaches to the wall. The shelf attaches to the wall by a steel mount I have welded that screws into the wall. For best results, the mount should screw into studs (made for 16″ apart) but should also work with one side in a stud and the other using a drywall screw. If your bike doesn’t fit, we can discuss tweaking the shelf to fit your bike.
Thanks again for all the nice emails/comments/blog posts, etc. This last week has been overwhelming on a couple fronts.
My son has finally arrived. Born yesterday, everything is great. Super chill and happy. So, if you have emailed me in the last couple days (or in the next), sorry I haven’t replied. I’ll get back to you in a day or two when the storm passes.
This is crazy… In the best way possible.
Please go here for the most updated information and purchasing options for The Bike Shelf. This site you are currently on is no longer being updated, there is a new Knife & Saw website.
Hello all. Thanks for all of the great feedback on the bike shelf. It’s been kind of overwhelming in a sense, but really nice to hear. I have finally nailed down the pricing and it as is follows:
Walnut (as seen in post and swatch here): $299
Ash (swatch seen here): $299
Many of you have emailed me asking for prices and wanting to order a shelf (or two), so if you are still interested, please email me again and let me know you would like one and I will get back to you on timing. As many of you know, I am expecting a son any day now (literally) so there might be a little delay but hopefully I can get to work on them soon.
Thanks again for all the nice feedback and hope to hear from you soon. You can see more photos here.
While visiting many friends small apartments here in SF and more so in NY, I noticed that there is a void when it comes to elegant bike management. Bikes always get in the way – either in the hall, leaning up against a wall, in the kitchen and so on. So, I decided to design something to fix that problem. Until I think of a better name, I am calling it the Bike Shelf.
There is always good quality scrap laying around the shop that either gets used for jigs or just thrown out so I decided to see what I could do with a pile of Ash that had been laying around for a while. This is the result. Hope you like where it’s headed.
Sorry it has once again been a while since the last post, but I’ve been busy with a few things… most notably getting ready for the arrival of my son. With this, came some new furniture. Please check out the new crib and dresser/changing table I have designed and built for the little man that is on his way. I am thinking of making a couple other things for the room, so stay tuned.
