Learn how to make your own in a few simple steps
- (1) 1×4 stock, cut to 7′ long (or however wide you want your shelf) – (1) 1×3 stock, 7′ long – (1) 1×2 stock, 7′ long - wood screws and wood glue - miter saw - drill - stain - level - stud finder
Using wood glue and 1.5" wood screws, attach the 1×4 to the 1×3. Next, attach the 1x2 to the front with just glue.
Apply the stain to the ledge. Once that is dry, apply a sealer to further protect it.
Using a stud finder and a level, screw the ledge directly into the studs.
