Perfect for Granite Countertops and Open Kitchen Shelves. Our customers send us pictures of our corbels supporting their countertops made of granite, quartz, wood etc. and pictures of their kitchen shelving. See our Customer Gallery.
Choosing a Corbel. Please see our Corbel FAQ or call or text Tyler at 970-690-0503 to discuss your countertop situation.
Strong and Easy to Install. All of our corbels are rated at 250lbs. when properly mounted and loaded uniformly.
Unfinished, but Perfectly Sanded. We use only the finest solid maple, solid cherry, solid oak and solid poplar for our corbels. Our corbels are meticulously sanded and all edges have been neatly rounded over. They are ready for you to stain and finish.
In Stock and Ready to Ship. Place your order before 4pm MST and we will ship the same day. We offer the full range of UPS and USPS shipping services.
Plan on painting your corbels? Our paint grade corbels are sanded and ready for you to paint. We intend for you to paint them because they may contain discolorations and filled knot holes. The "L" portion is always maple, but the brace and mounting plate portions may be maple, poplar or alder. Maple, poplar and alder are "tight, closed grain" woods, ideal for painting. If we don't have a paint grade model, then we suggest you choose maple.
Drywall Installation. If you intend to mount to drywall only, please see our Drywall Installation Kits.
Corbel Construction. The corbel's "L" joint is glued and screwed with two #10 X 1 1/2" long wood screws. The corbel's "L" portion is 3/4" thick X 2" wide. The corbel's mounting plate is 3/4" thick X 2 1/2" wide. The corbel's brace is assembled with two #10 X 1 1/2" long wood screws also. Our straight and concave braces are 3/4" thick X 1 1/2" wide, except for the Model 17's braces, which are 1 3/4" wide. Our Craftsman braces are 7/8" thick when viewed from the side and are 1 5/8" when viewed from the front.
We designed them. We build them. We designed the Maple Straight 10 Corbel in 1999 and over the years, due to customer demand, our line has grown to 70 models. We build them in our four-person shop in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado.
