Floating shelf for laptop station

It’s my husbands laptop station and Queen corner.....


Floating shelf made from plywood with the help of our oldest Grandson Hunta then oiled and beeswaxed!

Re: Floating Shelf

That looks fantastic, @hazesnow. I'm very impressed with how you have constructed this floating shelf, and I trust our members would appreciate some additional details on how the mounting mechanism works. It reminds me of how our concealed bracket floating shelves mount. A mounting plate with extension legs is attached to the wall, and the shelf slips over it. Is that what you have created here? Is the inside of the shelf hollow, and the E shaped bracket slips inside it? Very ingenious indeed!


Many thanks for sharing, and well done.




See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!

Re: Floating Shelf

As you mentioned the E bracket is fixed to the wall and then the box slides over and is fixed in place with two screws from the top into the back brace if the bracket! 
It’s not perfect but perfect for the spot!

Just love this blind shelf @hazesnow  that you have kindly shared with us...  But then I'm pretty crazy about timber...
