With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts. I started by giving the shelf a sand with the orbital sander just to clean up any very rough spots and remove any splinters. Hold the shelf up to the wall to get idea of exactly where you want it and make a reference mark.
Now starting with the smallest masonry bit you have (my case 3mm) drill holes into the wall on marks you marked out for shelf.
Now measure the exact pitch of your holes in the wall and mark the pitch on the back of your shelf. Insert the thread bar into the hole in your shelf  until t is all the way in then mark and measure the depth of the hole. Good work, I suggest to use TMT bar which can be hammered in both parts using drill bit slightly smaller in diameter than bar. February 12, 2014Ooooh, I am SO excited today to turn things over to my amazing husband and DIY partner, Joe, in this first installment of Joe’s Corner, in which he will teach you to make DIY floating shelves. After brainstorming some ideas, we decided to create floating shelves to fill the nook and now it is absolutely one of the highlights of the room. The first step is to measure the area where the DIY floating shelves will hang.  The nook I was dealing with was 33” x 15”. Because I was dealing with irregular wall measurements, I marked where each shelf would hang on the wall with painters tape and labeled each support piece accordingly.  Since this room was upstairs, I wanted to make sure I had each piece measured and cut correctly so I would not have to keep going up and down the stairs to fine tune each piece.


I used my nailer again to tac down the plywood shelves to the support pieces using 1” nails.

Like many homeschoolers, my dining room is my school room.  I really want it to look nice and uncluttered, but school supplies and books and maps and computers are hard to work with. Then we (I should say we because the kids helped me) attached the short boards to the longer boards using brackets.
We attached them to the wall using 3″ screws and made sure we went into at least 2 studs. We used wood glue and brad nails to attach it all together.  It was tedious, but it is sturdy in the end.
After the crown was all attached we put the top piece on (which we measured after we had the bottom all put together) and we added some wood blocks inside to give it support. Then caulk, paint, and slip the boxes onto the wall support.  A few small screws in the top will hold the box onto the wall support. The walls in this old house are so wavy that I had to caulk where the shelf meets the wall.
I've been wanting some big floating shelves like that for awhile now, but don't live anywhere near an Ikea. Floating shelves look very modern and don't take any space on the ground which is very important if you have a small apartment as I do.


I started following your blog after YHL posted something about Knock-Off Wood back in January. Turn a nut onto thread bar then slip on the washer and then turn into expansion  bolt. I used it to make a spice shelf for my kitchen, using recovered construction scaffolding wood! It's packed with DIY inspiration, deals you won't want to miss & helpful tips, as well as links to my latest posts.

Can I tell you how awesome cordless tools are… Especially for indoor projects like this one!
