Floating picture shelf is a great way to showcase books and other things in this video I'd like to show you how I made two of these for $ 8.00, using a tape measure I'm going to mark out 24 inches, because I want to show I'm going to use my miter saw to cut to 24 inch boards along the width of each board. I want to measure in mark four and six inches using a table saw.
I want to rip down the boards at before and six-inch mark, which will give me three boards per shelf and since I'm doing two shelves, that's six pieces. In total, the three and a half inch board is going to be the base of our shelf. Measuring mark at five and six inches flip the board around and repeat measure and mark at five and at six inches, I'm going to be using the Craig pocket hole jig to line up with the mark that I have just made clamp that to the place, then I'm going to be taking my drill and putting this pocket hole intake the board out of the clamp spin it over and once again match up the mark. That was made I'm going to be using some wood glue here on the back and front pieces.
It's important to flip over the base and then make sure that the glue is lined up nicely in the middle of the board. To do this with the front and the back pieces, I'm going to be using some clamps to make sure this stays in place. While I screw in those pockets flip the whole shelf over, you can get to the screws and use a drill to get the pocket holes inserted, use a rag to wipe off any excess wood glue and paint or stain whatever color you want. I chose white and I put on two coats now, it's time to get the mounting hardware installed click the Shelf over.
