Published at Monday, 27 August 2018. Floating Shelves. By Jordan Mills.
Once all the shelves were assembled, I used wood filler to fill in the holes on the side and painted the shelves white using a nap roller for a smooth finish before hanging the shelves. I've marked on the wall where the wall studs were with painters tape. Then, after centering and leveling each shelf, I screwed the shelf into the wall over the wall studs using 3-inch screws.
I used wood glue and two 1 and 5/8 inch wood screws to attach each mounting plate to attach each sideboard. I use 1/2 inch finishing nails and wood glue to attach the front rail. I used to scrap one by two to place under the rail to hold it level with the bottom and give me the same spacing on each shelf. I attached the rail through the side boards with finishing nails.
Nursery floating bookshelves, but I think I'm most excited about reading books like the stinky cheese man, so I've still cracked it open, but I look like it promises to be interesting to get started. I began by cutting a 1 by 6 board for the shelves to 20 inches long. Then I cut the same 1 by 6-inch board for the two sides 4 inches long. I clamped a board to the fence to make both cuts exactly the same length. The mounting plate on the back of the shelf is a 1 by 2-inch board cut 10 inches long.
