Diy Floating Wood Shelves – Floating shelves seem to have no supports lifting them. Actually, they are connected to the wall with a wooden strip (staple) that is screwed to the wall, and then the platform is connected to the wall by adjusting it on the wooden strip. These types of shelves can be bought new, but a cheaper (and more fun) alternative is to make your own from an old hollow interior door, and 2 x 4 wooden beams.
Mark horizontal lines on the wall with a pencil (use a spirit level) where you want to install your diy floating shelves solid wood. Using a beam detector, mark the location of each right foot along the horizontal lines. Determine how long you want each shelf to be (the area in which you want to hang the shelves will probably determine the size of the shelves you can install).
Cut the inner door along the desired width, using an electric saw (a diy thin floating shelves of DVDs can be 6 inches wide, a bookcase could be 8 inches wide). If the platform has to be shorter than the length of the door. Cut one end and insert a block of wood filler (measured and cut to size) at the open end; Use wood glue and brad nails 3/4 inches on both sides to hold it in place.
