Ⓕ DIY Simple Shelf (ep23)

  1. I used this idea for a floating "beam" style mantle. The wife thinks I'm a genius! Only about $50 in lumber for a $300 mantle. I plan on adding a hidden sound bar after a few more honey do's get done.

  2. Great project, nick.
    How did you get this box to fit together so nice and square? The boards I get at my local big box store are so bad, I can never get square joints. What's your secret? Thank you!

  3. When painting projects like you say spackle is awesome.  I have used it for years on things like this and never fails!  Fun quick project.   You could do videos on how you make videos!   Nice touch with the highlighting the parts! 
    I also am behind on bird house! Some awesome entries so far! 

    Sincerely Chris

  4. Nice one!  Regarding the sanding block, Get to the hobby shop, buy a piece of 1"X2" balsa (they come in 36" lengths)  Take your standard 1/4 sheet of your favorite grit of sandpaper wrap it around fastening with a standard office stapler.  You get to use all of the sandpaper except the 1/4" where the staples reside.  The balsa has just enough give for hand sanding without wearing through the sandpaper.

  5. Nice shelf. I have never used that keyhole hardware, Seems easy. I would have used A French cleat. I'm a creature of habit. Either way a great simple cheap project, just like I like.

  6. Spackle works great as a filler on woodworking projects, but make sure that the spackle you get is SANDABLE spackle. I made the mistake of not checking the label several years back and ended up with some stuff that just rolled up when you tried to sand it. It did not turn out well, suffice to say.

  7. Full of good tips: making the mounting blocks 16" apart to make sure you can attach to a stud and using joint compound to fill holes.  I like using those painters triangles too.

    Where those picture hanging hardware or something else?
    Thanks for the video.
    -Chris
