Custom Made-to-Order Shelves Shipping in Just 1-2 Weeks
I bought this to bore the shelf holes into solid rustic white oak shelving. We needed to get the holes 8" deep for the brackets. When the drill bit got over 4" deep it started to wander & ended up poking out the face of the shelf. We ended up using a paddle bit to get down as far as we could on the rest of the shelves & finished the hole with this auger bit. Also, the jigs that come with the brackets were crooked & we had to drill freehand. I wouldn't recommend this setup.
I was making a 25 lb 4 X 8 Floating Mantle and simply followed the steps in the website. I managed to get everything level and it turned out perfect. The help I got from your support person was spot on. This is a high quality product and company. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Thank you.
Didn’t work - ended up using a paddle bit. Was to long to use even with a commercial grade floor mounted drill press. Possibly could have worked by removing platform table after hours rebuilding drill press. Your little drill guide was useless- almost broke my wrist trying to use it and the 16” bit in a hand held power drill. Caution to others who try that method
Not sharp enough to cut wood
I ordered everything but the wood from Ultra and found it to be very beneficial in my project. The items, auger, templates, router bit, etc, all helped to assure the perfect installation of this decorative floating shelf. I would suggest ordering the metal auger guide for future projects over the wood type as the metal one is made to actually fit into the space routed out for the bracket. It would help assure a “center fit" of the hole quicker in the job. I would use Ultra for future shelf projects as a result of this experience.
