  1. Floating Candle Holder

    My niece is getting married in May and I made her a candle holder. I wanted the center piece to look like it was "floating" between the feet. The first two pictures are of the finished product. The third picture is showing the underside of how the feet are attached. The forth picture is an...
  2. Floating Shelves

    Custom made floating shelves for downstairs half bathroom.
  3. Floating Vanity

    I've been going through a major remodel over the past few months that included a brand new powder room. The bathroom is pretty narrow so I wanted a small custom wall hung vanity to fit with my vessel sink and wall faucet. What looks like a simple box turned out to be quite an interesting...
  4. Floating Backlit Bookshelves

    These bookshelves were a sub-project of a basement improvement project that I started early this year, and they're the first to be completely finished. I'll post the cabinet build project once they are completed (I'm oh-so-close). The bookshelves are 3/4" maple plywood with iron-on birch edge...
  5. New bed

    My wife and I have been wanting to get a different bed for years, but could never agree on what we wanted. We both found a bed that we loved (Nelson bed from an Italian designer), but the problem was it cost $7000. I modified the height of the bed to be lower so that our older dog with bad hips...
  6. Modern Entry Sofa Hall table Wenge and Sapele

    Finished this table a few months ago and wanted to post. It is a continued evolution of a style that I'm really enjoying developing. Ultra sturdy, much more than than one would expect. Wenge and sapele. I like the way it floats but seeing the under structure might be my favorite part. Top and...
  7. Twin Floating Corner Office Desks

    My wife and I were tired of having a dark, cluttered office. We were using a repurposed dining table as a shared office desk. See "before" picture below: I had some old mahogany on my lumber rack that I decided to put to use. We created a design to open up the room and bring in more light...
  8. Reclaimed Wood Floating Mantels

    I love being able to use reclaimed wood anytime possible. I made these mantels from a reclaimed beam from an 1800s house. At this point, I had no power jointer or planer, so i had to use all hand planes to flatten out the back of the mantels. The finish was several coats of lacquer. I think...
  9. Low Profile Entertainment Center with "Floating" Curly Maple Top and Cabinet

    Here's an entertainment center that I just finished a few weeks ago for my theater room. I'd seen a number of designs using the "floating" table top concept, so I took that same idea and modified it to work in this low profile entertainment center. I also made the lower cabinet "floating" as...
  10. Gecko Fence

    Not much in the way of a woodworking project but it combines my two favorite hobbies well. I was reworking the landscaping at the corner of my driveway and decided to add a fence. As usual I wanted something a little different. I think I like carving lizards because they are easy and fun. I also...
  11. Floating, Falling, then Captured Mirror

    This was a neat project, but a real pain in the mortice to build. It actually started as a floating mirror with two curved shelves as is shown in the third picture with no shelf for the mirror. I used mirror adhesive on a very large H frame of oak to hold the mirror. The oak piece had a keyhole...
  12. Reclaimed Maple Beam Mantle

    Here's a simple reclaimed mantle we put in a historic home in Phoenix. The customer came to the yard and picked out the beam that we cut this from. You'll see the pictures of how we made a french cleat for it in the shop and installed it in their home. This is my favorite way to float smaller...
  13. Zigzag Bookshelf

    A really good friend of mine got engaged, and I knew I had to do something really special for a wedding present. He's always been a fan of thinking outside the box with his projects, and so I thought I'd follow suit with this gift. The shelves are red oak, and the "hidden" vertical supports are...
  14. floating TV shelf

    This is a floating shelf for a tv I made, its maple stained espresso with three coats of lacquer, something about floating shelves always makes me look at them in awe… they just look cool lol.
  15. Mesquite Floating Cabinet

    Had some scrap. The front and back of this cabinet is mesquite, and the carcase is Spanish Cedar. I loved the look of that mesquite board on front. Construction is dados and rabbets. Front edges of the shelves are shaped to be slightly convex. The cabinet "floats" about 3/8 of an inch away...
  16. Walnut Entertainment Unit

    This is an entertainment unit I made for myself, we just got a new tv and I couldn't bear the thought of it having to rest on the old entertainment unit I made years ago… plus I wanted an excuse to make something cool. We ended up wall mounting the tv and hiding the wires in the wall, I decided...
  17. Walnut floating side table mith maple inlay

    This was quite a fun project to have a go at making. I wanted a bit of a show piece to try and get into a local wood gallery (haven't taken it down yet) It is American black walnut body and top with a Maple inlay and Maple brackets to give it a floating effect.
  18. Floating Shelves

    Although this is by no means a spectacular show of woodworking, I though some might be interested in how to do these types of shelves. I used 1/2" by 10" lag screws driven into the studs to support the project. Once driven in, I cut off the heads of the bolts. I drilled holes in the board that...
  19. Floating Shelves

    Built myself some floating shelves to hold my old school Nintendo NES, SNES and N64 games. The small one is solid Zebrawood, the tall one is a combination of Zebra wood and Sapele Ribbon wood, and the final one is a combo if Sapele with a highly figured Maple live edged top (my personal style as...
  20. Black walnut floating top coffee table

    This is a coffee table I made as a gift for my younger brother, who has just bought his first home. It is made from solid black walnut, with some maple and purpleheart accents. The design was heavily inspired from the floating Ouija table by Alex at...
