Following this question: How can I attach two pieces of wood in an invisible way?

I have another - what would be a good way to attach a shelf to a plaster wall, if it is completely supported (i.e. the attachment needs to withstand pulling or shear)?

I don't know if it matters, but the shelf will be next to a wall on two sides.


What about a floating shelf. You wouldn't be able to put much load on it on a partition wall though.

Here's a good Step by Step on How to Build Floating Shelves from The Family Handyman
