Wall mounted cantilever shelves | Soil & Oak

Wall Mounted Cantilever

General frame structure

Mounted to wall on the top and bottom. Cantilevers face OUT and the glass rests on top of them.

The walls will carry the load, so it’s important to ensure that the unit is reinforced / secured to studs or wood.

Shelving installation | Soil & Oak


1. Fully assemble the rails for your unit using your custom design.

2. Locate the first stud that will hold your unit.

3. This step is easiest with two people -- while one person holds the rail, carefully measure the wall to determine where the rail should be placed. Use a level to ensure the rail is straight. It is easiest to orient the flange with the holes in the "four corners" orientation.
