Step-By-Step Guide: Floating Shelf

By January 27, 2017 Uncategorized No Comments

We have had a lot of interest in a recent post about a mysterious floating shelf. So we thought we’d break down the steps taken.


Floating shelf with hidden bracket.

  1. Start with a blank wall (with TV resting on bracketing installed previously).


2. Custom-made steel bracket constructed and fitted wall.



3. A recycled timber beam was measured and cut with the following dimensions – 300 mm x 65mm x 4.2m long.

4. Timber beam was fitted to wall (with no visible fixings)


5. Six coats of clear timber finish was applied to protect the timber and to bring out the grain.



A simple, but creative way to add something different to your TV/living room.
