Nicely done, not real strong but looks great.

I always wondered what the best way was to attach those things to the wall. Superglue! Haha. On a serious note, I like the idea of using the dowels to screw in one side first. Nice.

make sure you drill holes in the stock before you cut the back piece off, its a pain to get them to line up if you don’t.

great, first time saw a shelf superglued to wall. If this really workable, it will much convenient to install shelves in the future. Do not know size of your shelf, but is it ok for a 24inch floating shelf, 2inch thick? Normally it needs to drill hole on wall and install with metal plate and screws. it really complicated and so much dust when drill holes.
