Hi, I've just been looking at the shelving project and thinking about how to put in three solid shelves along the length of a wall for books etc to sit on in my little study. Are floating shelves at 268 cm wide feasible, assuming they have back and side batons as well as a number of centre struts (say 4?).
I was going to use pine, maybe 3/4 - 1 inch thick. The back wall is masonry, as is the side wall on the right, but the side on the left is plasterboard. Thought I'd use deep plugs on the masonry sections and some plasterboard plugs on the side section on the left.
I suppose it is fair to say that the shelves would never be as strong as with regular solid metal brackets on vertical batons?
