Not to be a critic but why floating shelves? Customer request? Finding old kitchen cabinets takes some time but once you have a old carcass you can do wonders with modifications. All my cabinets in the shop are made in this way one holds 30 gallons of paint inside using the time tested method of a support at the bottom for setting it in place, a skid behind that support for some tilt inboard 1/8” only, and screws into studs at regular intervals. Do be picky and stay away from the new stuff made of something not wood with growth rings ect etc. A customer at my job gave me one of these, I took it apart and used it to make stoarge shelves in the rafters, being creative I did make a small cabinet for pen supplies but I would not put it in the house, for the shop is okay. Better Homes and Gardens does not come to my shop for a photo shoot. (Laughing)
