As promised here is failure number one. I saw these brackets in the wood store and thought I could adapt them to accept a 1/2” bolt, which they did. The problem is the metal is merely bent into an L shape to form a small shelf. It is not welded in place. When a neighbor helped me to set the cabinet on the floor the brackets splayed out and the cabinet box immediately sat on the floor. I didn’t really like the look of it anyway being on the outside and all. So the lesson here is don’t do this.
