there are shelves and then there is the uber stylish shelf known as The Floyd Shelf that lets you turn any flat planks or whatever flat pieces of up to 1 ⅝ inch (4 cm) into useful storage/display space, which is a super cool idea, because you can repurpose used planks that would otherwise destined for landfills or incinerations. Floyd Shelf consists of a set of left and right shelf brackets, and are made of steel produced right in the U.S.A. each bracket features a vertical lip on the inside that doubles as a bookend. available in white, black, or red power coat finish, the Floyd Shelf comes completes with the hardware necessary to mount the brackets to the wall.
once securely installed, all you have to do is slide your chosen wood onto the ‘ledges’ of the bracket and clamp it down with the integrated clamp found on each bracket. it is worthy to note that the brackets load should not exceed 50 lbs though, and also how much the shelf can load up also depends on the wall material and the hardware used to secure the brackets. if you are an avid home improvement dude or one who is familiar with DIY, you should know this obvious. now for the price. you can pick up a pair now for $85 from Floyd Leg web store.
