Floating shelf with no hardware at all, it's just floating against the wall. Actually I take that back, there's a little bit of hardware, but you can't see it at all pretty sweet. This shelf started with this four quarter. A piece of what I believe is some nicely figured salted maple. We want the shelf to be more like a quarter day, so what I'm going to do is basically mirror this board and laminate it together.
To get that thickness that I want, and then I believe I will have to creatively cut it to get a somewhat flat front edge to work with so that it doesn't stick out further on one side of the wall than the other. This is one of those projects. I don't have a set plane of all the steps that I'm going to have to take. So, let's figure that out as we go, I do know how I want to mount it to the wall, which I think is a little bit unique. I haven't seen it before, but the rest of the hurdles. We will have to figure out as we go.
So the star is a miter saw and the only things that we need to remember are we want 24 inches wide, at least, and at least eight inches deep. So I want to give myself a little local room around those dimension.I'M going to reference off of that to get a straight back line, cut that out roughly on the pan, saw and then I'll straighten that up, and that will give us our shelf dimensions with a flat back. The front won't be exactly parallel to the back, but will be close enough for a live edge shelf you
