Floating shelves with lights shelf with built-in LED lighting. So I thought it would be really nice to put a floating shelf above the bed where you can put books and things like that and make it a little bit more practical and really want some research by built-in LED lighting to kind of point down. So I've got a really nice piece of maple here with a live edge that I want to keep so I'm using some floating shelf hardware from rocker, and this is really easy to put together.
You just attach the brackets onto studs, assemble and then drill holes in your shelf, so it slips on the hardware. So I was trying to find the studs here and I give me weird results so anywhere. I just drilled a bunch and then I finally found one and I was able to.
I made a puzzle jig to make sure it was perfectly straight because if those holes are drilled straight, it won't go on the hardware right and for this I use this extra-long 7/16 inch drill bit storage now to create the recessed area, underneath I'm routing out two different depths, the first one was shallow, and this is where the acrylic will sit and deeper depth for the lights, and I made a little ratchet with an adjustable sense now to protect myself in the dust I'm using an RZ mask, and this is the remodel. The M 2.5 and it has two straps on it for a better fit.
Now I've been using the masks for a while now and I really like them. They come in different sizes, different colors and with replaceable filters. If you use the code, darby or burr during checkout you'll receive a free three-pack of1 filters with your purchase. So that's pretty cool and I try to switch my soldiers out pretty frequently when using the masks a lot - and this is 1/8 of an inch or about 3 millimeters acrylic.
I want to make sure I got a really snug fit so just doing a couple of adjustments here. Your Darwin is a little curious about the mass. I am a craving a frosted effect on the acrylic, so you won't be able to see the individual lights and I'm just using some frosted glass spray paint on both sides. This is a little jig for the router with a fence attached and it's we can route a straight line on the edge of the wood which the cord can fit into, and it's a small bit. I decided to go with high quality 90 + CRI LED lights that are daylight balanced.
