Around a few years ago, a buddy of mine saw a article on the internet on how to make a floating game shelf. He showed me a picture of it and asked me to make one for him. This is what I came up with. 

Step 1: Materials

Here is what you need:
An DVD or video game case
Scissors, X-Acto, or Dremel
Phillips screwdriver (or another type, depends on the screw you are using)
L- Brackets (Size does not truly matter as long as it fits in the case and is wide enough to balance the case)
Wall Anchors
Screws compatible with your anchors
Power Drill

<p>Maybe you should add sidebars of some kind so when you want a game thats under another game you can pull it out without making a huge mess.</p>
<p>This would be great to surprise my brother with. :) Love it.</p>
GRAMMER POLICE:&quot;An DVD or video game case&quot; should be &quot;A DVD or video game case&quot;.
GRAMMAR POLICE: &quot;GRAMMER POLICE&quot; should be &quot;GRAMMAR POLICE&quot;
I just got pwned. D:
Grammar nazi alert a DVD or video game case
Y not just put 2 L brackets up and games on top because then you'll have to double case a game<br/>
I was wondering something about the case. If you cut a small hole in the side of the case that snaps closed, isn't there a chance that the case might pop open? I was worried about this and thought to ask before I built this.
You mean &quot;Shelf&quot; right? Not self!
Haha, I was so tired when I wrote this. Thanks for pointing it out.
No problem! You can always change it by using author options!
