    Default Suspended Peninsula Cabinet

    I am removing my kitchen cabinet support posts.

    The cabinet is attached to the main beam of the house along the length, and to another cabinet at one end.

    Can I attach a 3/4 inch plywood piece inside the cabinet top with an angle iron connecting along to the beam?

    Is there an easier way I can secure this cabinet, without hanging it from the ceiling? I would like to use the main beam as a support. The cabinet has been firmly attached for 14 years in this position, but we are getting new counter-tops and need to remove these 2 end support posts.

    I do have pictures of this, I will post when my post count reaches more than 10.


    Thanks

    To hang cabinets through the top requires cabinets built to be installed that way, most are not.

    You can e-mail pictures to me jackson_l_mcdaniel@yahoo.com and I'll pot the for you. Put TOH PICS in the subject line and include your TOH user name or a link to this thread.

    They look like standard production type cabinets. They are not designed for the top to hold the weight . I would suggest you install the 3/4 plywood the same size as the top, then pocket screw the plywood into the side and front frame. You can then attach the brackets to the plywood and the beam.
