  1. what can be done if the wall is not that strong? my block of flats has been refurbished with polystyrene plate (I hope that's the English term) and the inside wall under my window has been done same way … how can I secure the shelves? I intend to have like a mini study desk … Thanks a bunch

  2. Can you use threaded black pipe instead of the custom brackets?

  3. Where do you recommend buying floating shelves? I want to put them in my kitchen to hold my sets of dishes. How much weight can they hold? Pls lmk ASAP. Ty

  4. Great post, informative and easy to understand. Thanks!

  5. Great video, super helpful, and I like your style. Thanks!

  6. 45$ a bracket seems steep from the website

  7. This was very informative but the materials and tools you used for this are not available for the average consumer, It would be helpful if you noted a substitute for the jig, the brackets, etc.

  8. Just installed my floating shelves in kitchen with your video…. thank you so much

  9. Thanks so much for putting this out there. Will it work on metal studs?

  10. Just did my floating shelves in the kitchen based off of your video. Thanks mate!👍

  11. The best tutorial. Thank you.

  12. appreciate this super informative and clear. much obliged.

  13. Your instructions are clear, but I have one complaint. I wish the mounting hardware you used was COTS, starting out the video and finding out I'll need custom-fabricated hardware was a little bit of a discouragement. Other than that, thanks!

  14. Great video! I've been anxious about hanging a floating shelf but watching this video made it relatively easy.

  15. As an amateur with woodworker, i typically feel overpowered with the entire arrangement https://www.youtube.com/post/UgkxrYREG3-7f1Aqk9ams3ZESRNzGnfdUtyQ . Be that as it may, this arrangements drove me through with much clarity and effortlessness woodplans. Works i now work like a genius. That is great!

  16. Thanks. Very easy to follow and no steps missing, making me wonder what the heck do I do now.

  17. What if I live in an apartment and can’t cut the drywall away 😢?
