A: It really depends on the stiffness of your board and how much weight you plan on it. Simple case I would do 3 brackets.... one in the center and the others about 1 foot in from the ends. Too far from the ends and the boards will bend under weight.
A: The Everbilt 12 in. x 8 in. Satin Nickel Heavy Duty Shelf Bracket may be an option for this application as long as it does not exceed the weight limit of 600 lbs each or 1200 lbs per pair. The surface should also not go more than 2 inches past the edge of the bracket. The brackets should be no more than 24 inches apart. All these things will help to ensure the brackets can perform up to their weight limits.
A: Yes you would need to use all 3 screw holes on the 8 in side of the wall for the Everbilt 12 in. x 8 in. Black Heavy Duty Shelf Bracket
A: As long as you are going into a stud that will be fine
A: Depends on how much weight you intend on putting on the shelf. Using all three holes would be ideal but if your not putting too much weight in it, two holes will be enough.
A: I guess it depends on the weight you plan to put on it. If there are 3 holes, I’d use all three. They built it that way for a reason.
A: Depending on the weight.
A: When using shelf brackets, do not exceed the listed weight load limit. Always use studs where possible. Any shelving or surface piece should not extend 2 inches past the shelf bracket. For the 12 in. x 8 in. White Heavy Duty Shelf Bracket, the longer side gets attached to the wall and the short side attaches to the shelf.
A: Yes we just put some shelves that were about that length. Very sturdy.
