My floating shelves seem to be a hit, we did another set out of STL local old joists and used hidden brackets to mount them. They turned out great and the saw marks give an extra awesome touch.
These look great! What stain color is this? We love the saw marks!
Thanks! There is no stain, it is the natural weathering of a hundred or so years. When I work with theses boards, I just plane and sand them flat, then add a coat of poly-acrylic.
What 'hidden' hardware did you use, and where did you get it?

I got these from Amazon but they also have them at Rockler.
Thanks again!. I have some fantastic cedar boards left from a media shelf project. I will do the faux barn aging and texturing and copy your floating shelves. Thanks for the inspiration!
That's awesome to hear, can't wait to see them.
