HOW TO HANG A MICROWAVE FROM BASE OF OVERHEAD CUPBOARDS

I wish to locate a microwave adjacent to cooktop hanging from overhead cupboards. The glass splashback prevents securing brackets being installed. To hang from cupboard on a stainless steel base with rods seems to be an option. But where do we start.

any advice

Hi @EricJ,

 

I'm sure Workshop members will be able to assist with some suggestions for you. It might be helpful though if you popped a picture or two up so members can visualise the space and see what you're working with.

Very basic looking shelf instructions here - https://www.instructables.com/id/Hanging-Microwave-Shelf/

 

What @MartyH shared looks a lot more attractive!

 

I'd just be careful that the cupboards can handle the load. Do you know what the cupboards are made out of?

Check out how @ogosh has used galvanised pipe for shelving here - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Living-and-Bedroom/Home-office-custom-furniture-build/td-p/20456

 

You could do something similar for the microwave that would look great.
