Brackets sold individually. Select the quantity of brackets based on the desired load and the number of studs your project will span.
- Supports materials from 9" to 24" deep
- Support up to 80 lbs. per bracket*. This depends on the flex in your surface material and how you attach your surface to the bracket.
NOTE: All brackets must be installed into studs, or posts. Failure to do so may result in saggy surfaces, falling objects or even injury.

How to install floating countertop
NOTE: Installing this hardware requires some innate awesomeness (you have that already) and woodworking experience, or a buddy with woodworking experience.
Tools to get started
- Tape measure
- Quick clamps
Before you begin
Our countertop brackets let you make a floating surface from just about any solid or hollow wood slabs, beam, rock, stone, boxed and aproned construction you choose. No matter what you choose, your finished slab needs to be at least 7 inches to 24 inches deep. Remember that the deeper your surface, the less weight it will hold at the outer edge (think physics, teeter-totters and levers).
All brackets must mount to the side of stud, or posts.
- Attach Bracket To Studs Or Posts
- Add Wall finish around your brackets leaving the posts visible
- Prepare Your Slab To Fit Floating Surface Supports
- Test The Bracket And Surface Fit
- Mount Your Surface
- Secure in Place
