I would try using 9-1/2 inch deep floating shelves. To float: a) drill 3/8 inch hole 5 – 6 inches deep into back edge of shelves every 12 inches, b) cut off a 1 inch slice from back of shelf, c) cut 3/8 inch deep dado for the shelves to fit in into back plywood panel, d) glue and screw slice into dado, e) drill through back panel ising holes from a) as pattern, f) insert dowels extending from outside of back panel and long enough to almost reach bottom of shelf hole and glue assembly. I.e., glue entire length of dowels and back edge of shelf.
