    This may seem like a silly question, but we're getting some shelving cut from our wooden kitchen worktop material for shelving on the wall. We want these to be ~6-8" deep, and are planning on getting some heavy duty iron brackets to hold them.

    What size brackets would you get relative to the depth of the wooden shelving unit?

    Assuming L- shaped brackets, the top which fastens to the underside of the timber needs to be at least 2/3 of the depth of the shelf. There are plenty of nice cast-iron brackets on eBay with all the necessary dimensions on the listings. I do this regularly for customers. Assuming oak or a similar material, make sure you drill pilot holes in the timber before putting your screws in. No point in wasting sink and hob cutouts ;)
