  1. Floating walnut shelves (part 2)

    Floating walnut shelves (part 2) Floating walnut cabinets (Part 1) I told my wife that it'll take 2 weeks to build this unit. That was last Christmas. The cabinets were made and installed 8 months ago as described in this past post (part 1). The floating shelves is Part 2 and it was...
  2. Floating shelves and lit bottles

    I have build three floating shelves for in the office of a friend of mine. He ownes a video company and recently did a video shoot for a chemics company. He had some left over props and wanted to do something with it. So I build these shelves with led spots upside down in it. The bottles stand...
  3. Floating Serpentine Shelf

    My wife and I wanted a set of shelves to mostly fill the back wall of our study, but we wanted something different and unique; we didn't want a heavy looking wall of bookcases. My wife had two more requirements: the shelf had to be made of wood (unpainted), and it had to float on the wall...
  4. Floating Shelves

    An early valentines day gift for my wife. Made of pine and birch plywood. I made the three shelves different sizes, more for the aesthetic look rather than a uniform same size look. The shelves are unfinished, just a very light coat of poly for a little protection. I chamfered the edges to take...
  5. Floating Shelves

    I saw the plans in a back issue of Woodworking Magazine and decided to give it a try with some scraps I had. They turned out okay and fit pretty good in one of the our bathrooms. I think I will be making a couple more for our other restroom.

    made with pine & mdf.
  7. Solid Walnut Floating Shelves

    A work friend of mine asked me to build her some floating shelves. Seemed easy enough. And it was, overall. However, the finish was a bear. It's by far the weakest part of my woodworking game. Us newbs can can cover a lot of mistakes and poor technique till we get to the finish! Should...
  8. Floating barnwood shelves for my office

    One of the benefits of working from home is the ability to decorate your office however you like. I bought these and a couple other pieces a while back. After pressure washing an untold number of years of "dirt" off them I left them to hang out and acclimate to the house. Once I got them...
  9. Floating Shelves

    A recent edition of Wood Magazine offered this design. I pretty much followed their directions as closely as possible. The only thing I changed was that the spine is removable on mine. This item would be very awkward to move when complete as per the plans in the magazine. It turned out...

  11. Kitchen Floating Shelves

    These shelves were part of our original new kitchen design, but I am just now getting them done (only a year later, not bad!). When we were designing the kitchen, the guy helping us said that the floating shelves offered thorough the cabinet company were 36" long, couldn't be cut, and were...
  12. Live Edge Shelf

    I bought this live edge shelf at home depot and half of the piece of wood had bark. The other half did not have bark and add stain to it as well. Both designs of the live edge came out looking awesome! For a how to video and free plans for this project click on Video: Check out my YouTube...
  13. Modern Floating Shelves with Frames

    Here are some floating shelves with floating frames. These combine the ever-popular floating wall shelf with a picture frame border attached via a small groove. The floating shelves are made of white oak, and the frames are walnut. I ebonized the walnut to really add some contrast to the design...
  14. Floating Shelves

    I first have to give cuddos to this young chap for the idea: . I'm getting ready redo an extra room into a painting area/room for my wifee. This isn't really a "wood project", but, It's a pretty simple way to put up some super fast floating shelves, (these will hold nothing but a few canvas...
  15. Floating Shelves for the Man Cave

    To complement my last project, a walnut plaque for a Euro Mount. I wanted to add some floating shelves behind the bar in my Man Cave. Just as I did with the plaque, I used walnut. The shelves are about 20" long and about 6" deep. I used my router to cut a 1/2" rabbet on the inside of the fronts...
  16. Floating Shelves

    My wife had asked about putting some book shelves in this area of the house. I talked her into floating shelves thinking that it would be a little easier and a little more robust to hold the weight over a 6' section. Well I was right in my thinking for one way but not the easier way. The last...
  17. Floating Cherry Shelves

    I got a commission to build some floating shelves for a kitchen. I also was asked to demo the old cabinets and as this was an older home I ran into a few snafus during this process. We ended up tearing all the sheetrock of the kitchen wall in order to repair some electrical and plumbing work...
  18. Pantry with Floating shelves

    I remodeled this small pantry…. removed all the old shelving (which was hideous), patched up the walls, removed popcorn and added knockdown texture… and then built these nice looking floating shelves, which you can see in the pictures. I used 4/4 pine which I got from HD as stair treads.
  19. Walnut Floating Shelves

    The first version of any of my woodworking projects never seem to turn out the way I hope, no matter how much planning is involved. Experience can minimize errors in construction and design, but I still expect to need to churn out a version 2.0 even when I'm a seasoned woodworker. I accept it as...
  20. Bathroom Projects (Floating Shelves and Medicine Cabinet)

    I renovated my bathroom and I took the opportunity to make a couple custom fixtures for it. Floating Shelves: Since the studs were in non-ideal areas (and I wasn't about to attach them to drywall alone), I decided to attach the shelves to pieces of plywood that span the studs, and attach those...
