My stab at floating shelves

Recommended Posts

Not exactly a tough project but proved more challenging than I thought it was going to be.  Mainly because of the finish (weakest area for me by far).  Was great experience though and I am going to practice finishing rather than just try out whatever on an actual project. The floating shelf hardware was great.  I had quite a bit of anxiety about getting the holes lined up but technique I talk about in this video makes it a breeze.  Hope you all enjoy it.  All feedback welcome and appreciated.

My greatest challenge of the build would have been my wife being there every second I was at Shelby’s house. Mostly just kidding. Excellent job and video sir!

My vacuum cart is a little bit modified version of Jay Bates cart.  You can find that here: https://jayscustomcreations.com/2015/01/make-a-shopvac-and-cyclone-shop-cart/

Very old post from a member that also hasn't been here in a bit..  There's lots of options out there for floating shelf hardware though.

Looks like he is using one of Rockler's offerings.

Yup, I've used those before, they were very good. Just like him, I used my self centering dowel jig to drill the perfect centered and parallel holes into the shelf, which is the only real challenge.
