Hanging wall shelves plans,articles about woodworking,woodcrafters home products president - How to DIY

We made our shelves approx 3ft wide because this way we could get 3 pocket holes per shelf and each one would line up with a stud. If, as was the case in our guest bath where we also added floating shelves, you cannot line each of the shelf’s pocket holes up with a stud, you can use a toggle bolt for added security. The first thing we did was find our studs in the wall, that helped us to decide how long we wanted the shelves, then we drilled our pocket holes using our Kreg Jig.
Our pocket holes now lined up with the studs in our wall so that all 3 screws are secured into a stud.
We have these shelves both in our master (with large glass containers on them!) and in our bathroom. As far as children go, I have a small child, too and none of our shelves are low enough he can reach.


For the rest of it, it sounds like combined with the Kreg HD and the fact that your shelving will be placed in studs at several points, I think they’ll be quite sturdy and stunning to look at.
I have been attempting to hang these type of shelves with a screw in one stud and toggle bolts for the other screw however I can’t get the screw to go into the actual metal part of the toggle bolt as the screws are at an angle.
Is it their modern clean lines, their sophisticated simplicity or the fact that they look like they could fall of the wall any minute. I also tried using toggle bolts that screw onto the end of the screw prior to inserting into the wall however the screws with the small enough head to fit in the pre-drilled hole in the wood are too short to use.
I have done these shelves in two rooms in the house now and the depth and length varied both times depending on the needs of the space {more on why in a minute}.
Because of the angle of the screw and the weight of the board the head of the screw pulls and keeps the top edge of the board snug against the wall, if attached from the top.


Careful what you place on the shelves though when you’re only able to anchor to one stud. With the screw attached from the bottom it will keep the bottom of the board snug to the wall but doesn’t keep the top of the board snug to the wall.
