Floating a base cabinet
My garage needs storage. Lots of it. I want to build a bunch of cabinets but part of the garage floor has a slope to it and I'm concerned about flooding or water in the garage.
I decided that I wanted the cabinets to not rest on the floor, and I'd like to build floating base cabinets with french cleats. I came up with a quick design that I think would be strong enough to support the cabinet and countertop, but I wanted other opinions first. What do you guys think? Would the following design be strong enough for a standard 25" deep base cabinet?
Once the cabinets are resting on the french cleats, I'll drive screws through the 1x4's on the back of the cabinets into the cleat on the wall.
