How do you construct floating shelves to hold this much weight?!

Basically a cleat is installed with good screws in the back into the studs of the wall.

I hope that helps. It is best to have a licensed and well experienced "cabinet contractor" construct properly and install under the laws of the state. In California we have stricter laws and guild lines due to our earthquakes. This way it prohibits the cabinets from falling during so called minor earthquakes. Also, these cabinets are not that large to create a large hazard in faltering.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: Shelve Your Storage Woes
A floating wall system like this one provides low-impact but highly effective display space, while the hanging drawers contribute needed storage. (And since they float off the floor, the room looks larger.) Depending on the size and weight of your TV, you might be able to mount it on shelving like this, so it doesn’t eat up any space in your small room.

Note bottom storage, but do until floor and don't extend to under bookshelf which will be from floor to ceiling. Don't add bottom storage under "L" of work table.
