Floating Shelf with drawer

The wife want a shelf above her vinyl cutting table, I decided to add a shelf to it so she would be able to place the vinyl and cutting tool in there. I had a challenge while planning but decided to anchor a 2x4 to the wall and screw the shelf to that. I was surprised how well the shelf came together and would slide in and out. I decided to add a rabbit grove to the bottom of the shelf to act as a handle so I did not have to add any hardware to the front to give it a clean look. Everyone that comes over loves it and I have made five more for my wife's friends. this was a fun project and just take your time and measure twice.

  • This is a fantastic design! No wonder your wife's friends wanted their own! Way to go on the clean, no-hardware look on the drawer. You'd never know there was hidden storage space in there!
