I just put up my new wall mounted big screen. It's cool, but anyway...
I want to make a floating shelf
54 x 16 x 2.25
I think I'm going to do this by using 3/4" plywood, cutting out 3 shelves, gluing them together, then finishing with some veneer. I've previously refinished a LOT of furniture, but want to start building my own projects. Initially I wanted to make a floating entertainment center, but since I've never really "built" anything of my own, and never dealt with veneer, I decided this way would still look really good, and be a little bit safer for my first effort. All flat surfaces, the front being 2.25 thick will be easier than the 3/4 " edges that would have been on the other project.
My question is this..
1. Is my thinking sound as far as gluing the boards and making my first easier to apply the veneer?
Yes I thought about using veneered plywood, but I want to use some different veneer, something semi unique. I really wanted to use the plyboo bamboo plywood, that stuff wouldn't need anything even on the front edge, but it's not really available where I live.
