Deep floating shelves. So I built these out of some fancier hardwoods. I used on this bottom shelf and soft maple on the top shelf, but if you don't have the machinery required to mill rough lumber, you could build this out of something like a 2 by 8 from your local home center and build these with nothing. But a circular saw to cut the board's the length, a drill to cut the holes in the back for the floating shelf hardware, as well as cut the holes for the dowels and in the doweling jig itself, which is only about 20 bucks.
So this is a great beginner woodworking project and if you build that of a 2 by 8, you can paint it or stain it to match the look to your hero 4. So let's go ahead and get started with the build. So, as I said in the intro if you don't have access to the tools required to mill rough lumber, you can either buy s4s lumber from your local lumber dealer, which means it's already surfaced on all sides or you could use something like a 2 by 8. From your local home center, so the first step since I was using rough lumber was squaring up.
The wood-using my joiner planer and table saw so I started by joining one edge on the joiner, then cut the shelf pieces to rough linked on the miter saw. So the dimensions of the shelf pieces are 18 inches long by 6, inches wide for the top and bottom pieces and 5 and a half inches long by 6 inches wide for the side pieces. So I left the two side pieces of the shelves as 1 11 inch piece since they would have been too short to pass through my planer, otherwise.
