Floating shelves provide storage space and look great while doing it. Jamison, from Rogue Engineer, crafted his own version of a floating shelf that has a drop down shelf for quick access to stored items. Looking to have your self defense weapon** close by in any room of the home?
You can safely store these items without having to run to another room to arm yourself. The construction technique is straightforward and he shows how to find the studs in the wall. To secure the shelf be sure to use two screws per stud.
Suitable for everyday use, the shelf can also secure valuables. If you live in a high crime area, you can safely store jewelry, money, or other highly valuable items. It matches any decor, and you can paint it black for a more modern decor. The shelf combines style and function. Great job Jamison.
**Self Defense items should be stored locked and out of reach of children at all times.
