Floating Library Shelves

/
/

Obligatory finished photo, first.The boss wanted library shelves with a few requirements: They need to be thick, dark, no vertical supports, as long as possible.I laid out the studs and transferred them to the wall brackets.Step one: Aquire 1″ square tube steel for wall brackets. Step two: Buy welder. Step three: Try to recall high school shop class.Clean layout makes me happy.Pilot holes, step drill, lubricating oil, and patience.Supports welded to the wall brackets.Bracket 1 installed for test fit.12 total brackets.

The shelves consist of 2 pieces of 1/2″ and 1 piece of 1/4″ plywood sandwiched between 2 sheets of plywood.Laid out to fall between the steel supports.Short shelves complete with a tongue to tie the two together in the corner.Staining the faces.Staining the shelves.The shelf simply slides over the steel support.Shelves up.Face frames attached.Relaxing in the completed room.All loaded up. The kids could climb these things, not that I’m going to tell them that.
