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.
This is a small version, but you get the gist and you're going to see these later in the video as well. Now I'm kind of confused if I would into the strips that are going to become the bottom in the tops of the floating shelves themselves. Here are the pieces that are going to be the skeletal structure that is going to be on the shelves that are going to go in between the brackets that I made earlier
