Newbie here. Not my first project but my first posting. This is a floating wall shelf made entirely of red oak and finished with Poly. I got the plans from Wood magazine for this one. Thanks for checking it out!

Ryan, Welcome aboard.
Nice looking shelf, have to remember how well that picture frame fits with the shelf (we have the exact same one).

Do you recall what issue the plans were in? I have been thinking about making something like this for the bedside to move a few things that sit on the night stands.

I got it from their website actually. Are we allowed to post links here? If so, it’s located here.

I altered it a little, I used a french cleat to hang it. I didnt like the idea of attaching it with screws through the top like the plans state.

Hey Ryan,
Looks good! might not get a bunch of comments but that’s OK. It’s a great starting project for your portfolio.

If I had one like this, I’d want to put 4 black iron coat hooks on it and mount it in a hallway.

Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Ryan: OK, now I know just what I want to replace the glass shelves in our living room. Although myself, I’m not a huge fan of Oak I have a lot of it I purchase a few years back from a guy who closed his shop. They will compliment our decor very nicely and my wife will be glad to see more wood in the house. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. Keep up the nice work. P.S. The french cleat was a better choice in my opinion.

The wood looks great and it’s well installed. A great addition to a bare wall. Great job!

Have your say...
