Published at Tuesday, 28 August 2018. Floating Shelves. By Carrie Hurley.
This stock is three-quarters of an inch thick and I'm going to rip it down on the table tall. Here are a two and a half inch strip. So, as you can tell by the title of this video, this is the absolute strongest way I have found to make these floating shelves. I've made quite a few sets of these in my lifetime.
I'm going to share with you the technique and how I make these floating shelves stay level, their entire lifetime, all right now, making my way to the crosscut sled. I go ahead and set up a stop block to cut these pieces to length. My client wanted 60-inch shelves that way. I'm cutting these pieces into 56-inch strips here I joined them together to double them up.
These are going to be part of the bracket, so they're going to stick out of the wall that is going to hold the shelf in place and unfortunately, as I'm filming this, my camera dies, but I made a makeshift diagram of how these things are made. Basically, you do a series of layers with this plywood and the brackets themselves that stick out at 90 degrees to create mortise and tenon joints all throughout.
