wood brackets

Expert Advice:
In this project a cherry wood corbels were chosen to work with the existing cherry wood paneled cabinets. When possible it is always best to match the wood type of the corbels to the wood type of the kitchen cabinets. This will insure the closest possible match for the finish on all elements of the kitchen design.

When you cannot match the wood type we recommend us of maple corbels because, maple wood is light in color and stains well either light or dark.

Hi, I purchased the corbels in the enclosed picture from you last January. The corbels look very nice and add elegance to the cherry woodwork I built on the face of the bar. It was a big project and I wanted corbels that were as ornate as the inlaid panels I constructed. I used 3" wood screw and a long level to ensure the support brackets were true.

This step is especially important for an 11'6" raised granite bar top that is 21" deep. I recommend "measure three times and screw in once". The granite installer had never seen these corbels and thought they offered very good support for the countertop. Everyone is always impressed with the bar and complement the corbels. Thanks for the good product and great customer service.

Best regards,
