The wife wanted to hang some shelves, but didn’t want to see the brackets.

Simple, really… routed out the back of it to allow for an L-shaped aluminum bar, drilled a few holes for mounting and bolted 3/8 inch threaded rod to the aluminum to extend the support and Voila.

It is cherry, stained because she likes the dark wood look.

No, I didn’t have anything to do with the fish.

Ryno, those shelves look really good. Can you post pictures of the slot you routed for the L-bracket?

@tool_junkie… I didn’t want to have to take it off the walls, so I posted a few views from the Sketchup drawing I made… first two pics are showing the bracket itself that I made, then a see-through pic of the entire assembly, finally a view from the back showing the routed out area that the bracket fits in.

Thanks for noticing!

Thanks Rayno. Those sketchup drawings explain the concept very well. Thanks for providing the additional details.

Have your say...
