I have build three floating shelves for in the office of a friend of mine. He ownes a video company and recently did a video shoot for a chemics company. He had some left over props and wanted to do something with it.
So I build these shelves with led spots upside down in it. The bottles stand on top of the led’s so the fluid gets lit up.

I have made a video of the build wich can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/sEuf0JUSbZk. Please take a look and let me know what you think of it.

Best regards, Gerry

nice shelves and cool video , why did you sand pva glue into the fronts before finishing? did you use steel rods to hang them?

Hi men, I thought of steel first as well but Then I tried the following first and it worked fine: I just glued en screwed a piece of spruce to a small piece of 18mm (3/4”) plywood. Two of those pieces got screwed to the wall and I just put the shelve over the spruce (and plywood).
The wall is a partly hollow wooden structure (probably there is an official term for this in english) and I could open up the backside to wire the leds.

The glue mixes with the sanding dust and fills the tiny holes made by the pinnailer.

That’s better than the method I envisioned. Same concept just not as bulky as I might have unneccesarily done. Thanks for sharing ( and I can’t understand why it’s not T3 )
