Wall construction


Recommended Posts

With counter space being tight my plan is to put a shelf between the counter and underside of uppers. As it currently stands the space available is 24". The idea is to put a 10" deep by 45" long shelf midway up. This would take canisters, toaster and kettle, clearing off the counter. All would be stowed for travel. Weight isn't much but I'd like to know the construction of the slideout wall to see what and how many fasteners to use also the length of the fasteners.


Is it 1/8" hardboard on wood or steel studs?


Later today, I'll get my stud finder and search for studs.


The shelf is acrylic with an led light strip around the edge to add some bling.

Find the studs and attach shelf brackets to those. It is usually pretty easy to locate studs by pressing on the wall till you fine the spot that doesn't flex in. Go 16" either side of that and you should find another spot that doesn't flex in. A 1/16' drill bit will confirm if you hit the stud and if not is an easy hole to fill and be invisible. If you have wood studs use drywall screws. If you have aluminum studs there are several types of anchors that will work. Visit your local hardware for a selection. Good luck.
