Float on. We call them “Floating Desk Brackets,” but this DIY hardware supports a multitude of floating desk, shelf and mantle styles, in a variety of sizes, without visible support. Use this steel bracket anywhere heavy-duty, gravity-defying construction is required.
Shelfology floating desk hardware is engineered to support solid or hollow slabs, beams, and apron-construction surfaces 1½" to 4" thick, and from 9" to 24" deep. Designed for professionals as well as DIY’ers, these brackets are simple to install on wood and steel framed walls.
- Mounting plate is ¼" thick x 12" long x 3" wide, hot-rolled steel
- Mounts to side of stud
- Screw holes are ¼" OD, ideal for high strength ¼" lag bolts

HOW TO INSTALL FLOATING MANTELS
NOTE: Installing this hardware requires some innate awesomeness (you have that already) and woodworking experience, or a buddy with woodworking experience.
TOOLS TO GET STARTED
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Our heavy duty brackets let you make a floating surface from just about any solid or hollow slabs, beams, box and aproned construction you choose. Hardwoods are durable and hold a nice finish, while softer woods can provide an aged, textured finish. No matter what you choose, your finished lumber needs to be at least 1½ inches to 4 inches thick, and from 7 inches to 24 inches deep. Remember that the deeper your surface, the less weight it will hold at the outer edge (think physics, teeter-totters and levers).
All brackets must mount to the side of stud, or posts.
