see a lot of products out there for bracing a heavy counter top.
Federal Brace, Fastcap Speed Brace......
Anybody ever work with these? And do you think they could support the
weight as a bench. The bench, of course would not be made of a heavy
granite counter top, but would support the weight of a person sitting
Thanks in advance
I have used the Federal Brace products and found that they are substantial brackets. The supports with the cross brace stiffeners between the support flanges will support a bench. Don't think that I would use the straight L type brackets like the Freedom style without the stiffeners. The ones I used were the Brunswick support - http://www.federalbrace.com/Brunswick_Countertop_Brackets_ppsqo_VHV22923YTW_VHV117YTW_VHV6YTW_VHV22923YTW.aspx
You may also want to talk with a Federal Brace rep about the customization services. I think that they will make a support to suite your design if desired.
That is sort of what I was thinking. They seem a little pricey though....
