I'm looking to install three floating shelves
June 15, 2014
The final measurements would be 32" wide x 8" deep x whatever thickness. Question: What size bracket would I order to handle the weight on an 8" shelf and how thick would the shelf have to be so the post would be appropriately centred for mounting? Many thanks

I'm attaching a line drawing of the bracket so you know the dimensions. Because the brackets are 16" on center you will only be able to use two brackets per shelf. For an 8" wide shelf the six inch brackets will be fine.
