Handyman Phil II
This evening I mounted an auxiliary shelf in my kitchen, over the counter beside the stove.  When I was cleaning the kitchen a couple of weeks ago I'd decided this was The Thing To Do, and I'd bought the shelf, a pair of mounting brackets, and the appropriate screws when I was at Lowe's.  After I got them home, I discovered that the mounting brackets were slightly too large to fit in the wall space where I wanted them, because the countertop has one of those vertical extensions which comes halfway up that wall.  But the shelf is noticeably deeper than the brackets are long, and I decided that it should be quite effective to attach a piece of wood to the wall that was thicker than the counter top extension, and attach the brackets to that.

The details of the operationCollapse )

I pronounced myself satisfied. A job well done.
