Whether a floating granite island or a custom office desk, expensive materials are a waste without strong support underneath them! After creating a ultra-sturdy desk from 1-1/2-inch Red Oak, Tool Hero was on the hunt to find the toughest brackets on the market.
After an exhaustive search through big box and local hardware stores, we stumbled across the The Original Granite Bracket company online. With positive reviews, we decided to take the plunge for four 14 x 10-inch heavy duty large brackets at $51 each! That’s a significant investment into brackets, no doubt.
The brackets are Made of 1/2-inch thick American steel and are 2.5 inches wide and are seriously heavy duty. We were very impressed with the clean welds and the end result: they had no problem manage our 200-pound frame on top of the desk!
We do suggest pre-drilling holes as you mount the brackets. As we were installing the brackets, we snapped one screw head clean off before finding the pre-drillng directions in the second bracket box. Pre-drilling made installation much easier on the final three brackets we installed.
The Original Bracket Company’s brackets earn the coveted 4 out of 4 Tool Hero hammers. Excellent product built for a lifetime.Chris Vogtman – Tool Hero
