Re: Floating desk - brick wall install

Hi @homehack,

 

A standard PVA wood glue would be suitable for laminating two sheets together. You could use a Polyurethane adhesive, which is stronger than PVA, but it is not really required in that sort of application and can be messy to clean up.

Hi @garryddon,

 

If you can locate the studs and fix the brackets onto them, I see no reason why you couldn't plaster over them as @ProjectPete has with the brick wall. My only real concern is there might be a little flex to the timber and your topcoat plaster could get hairlines cracks. I'm sure Pete can let us know if he believes it will be an issue.
