Floating corner shelves



My wife approached me with a project and in one day I managed to complete from start to finish.
She wanted some free floating corner shelves and they were very easy. I made them from scrap pallet wood,some salvaged 12 x12s, and some salvaged 1x1 trim.

  • Take three 12x12 boards and cross rip to create your tops and bottoms of shelves. Then get a 1x1” piece of trim and cut six small 5” long strips and mout to 3 of the triangles along the corner edge. (These art how you will mount in wall. Then clamp the three sections together and measure for the front trim. I had about a 3” piece needed and rip sawed a piece of pallet wood then cut face sections to fit. To mount on Wall you will need self tapping screws a screwdriver, level, and measuring tape. I spaced my shelves about a foot apart. Take the piece with your 1x1 mounting strips and secure to wall once level with 4 screws two in each side. The. Add the top and put one screw in the back corner mounting it to base. Add faceplate and secure with a couple of screws or if you prefer finishing nails. Repeat for each shelf and you will have it. I suggest leveling during each step to ensure you have the look you are going for. Good luck!!!
