Floating shelves are known to be the most beautiful kind of shelving to store items and display showpieces. They are beautiful because they have hidden support to mount on wall and carry items. Like other shelves, they don’t show sneaky brackets or any brace. Instead, the holders are inside the shelf.
First of all the support is made ready which is a pine board of small width and desired length. It is drilled and fixed on wall through bolts. After that, the shelf with inner space to fit that pine board is mounted onto it. By drilling and bolting, it is joined with the board from both upper and lower sides, and the product is ready.
