Breakfast Bar

Hi

Just looking for confirmation/suggestion really.

We want to put a breakfast bar in against two walls (as per picture).

It's into solid wall, not plasterboard. I'm thinking secure batons to the wall with a good number of screws against both walls and then secure worktop to the batons, and add a leg.

Hopefully the diagram I've drawn explains it - do you think this will be enough or will we need to do more to secure the top?

Can't secure the leg to the floor at the moment but could put a bracket at the leg end against the wall to add extra stability if needed - but not sure if this is overkill.

Can anyone help?

Cheers

Yes, the battens should be fine but you'll need to secure the leg enough to make sure it won't fall if knocked from the side. You could put a diagonal or two nearish the top if you don't want to secure to the floor - think of a standard table for inspiration.

OK - so the leg will be attached to the top of the table, just not the the floor - but I could add the bracket/diagonal at that end too for extra stability.

I really don't want it accidentally ripped off the wall at some point grin
