Multi-material projects always spark our interest. Reader gregjsmith and his friend Cy decided to build a floating shelf for their new TV. After noting that a 68” span was too much for wood alone, these guys decided that rather than give up on the design, they’d add some steel. Rock!

The final product turned out great — it supports the massive screen, no problem. We love the shelf, but more than that we love to see some down and dirty welding and fabrication. Plus, note the gratuitous American Dad on the ‘set. Nice!

    I’m not sure I understand what the big deal is here. I saw “floating shelf” and thought it was going to be some hidden thing that makes the TV look like it’s floating. Instead, I saw a triangular shaped shelf bolted into a corner with the TV plopped on top.

    The work looks very well done, but as far as I can see it’s just a shelf with a metal frame and a wooden top.
