Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigD Quality product at a Tremendous Value
I purchased four of these corbels to help support new granite counter tops that I was having installed. I was very impressed with the wide selection of styles at all price points that were available at Home Depot and particularly from this manufacturer (Ekena).
The corbels were constructed & carved well, good quality wood, rigid, and finished/sanded to accept primer or paint and the mounting brackets were well made. Shipping was quick and the packaging was adequate.
Where Ekena could have done a bit better would have been including installation instructions, suggesting the proper mounting fastener, or at the very least the gauge of fastener and showing an image of the product from the back so I could tell how the product was intended to be mounted prior to receiving it.
That said I would highly recommend one of the Ekena products as it was great quality at an incredible value.

As the other reviewer stated, the quality of the bracket is superb. The wood is very smooth and ready to stain or paint without requiring sanding.
I also agree that the manufacturer needs to include some kind of recommendation on fasteners. The product description says these brackets will hold 150 lbs. with proper installation, but they don't provide the proper installation instructions.
