Item details

This is a DISCOUNTED pair because they have some abnormalities. PLEASE read the description below so that you understand. You will receive the EXACT custom set of braces that you SEE.

Like MOST of our items, these ship FREE (NOT counting HI AK & PR) to the lower 48 states.

This is an UNFINISHED set. Rick cuts out and assembles these brackets by hand and we typically sell them for quite a bit MORE than this set. The REASON this set is much less is because:

A) they are unfinished (NOT yet painted). You can choose to finish them yourself by sealing them as-is.......painting them.....or having them sandblasted and powdercoated. Obviously we leave that to you. I WILL mention that because these are unfinished and raw, they have already started to rust (typical before these are painted). One of the most GORGEOUS finishes done with these is to put them outside and allow them to continue to rust. when they get just the right amount of rust for the look you want you can spray them with a clear coat (we use rust-o-leum satin finish//comes in a spray can at Lowe's). OR spray them as-is for a more "industrial" look.

B) they are defective because the center scroll is mounted in opposite directions on each. On one brace the scroll is facing IN and on the other brace it is facing OUT. AND the scroll on one of them is mounted slightly further IN than the other. I'm listing them because if you were using them on opposite ends of a large area I don't think it would matter. They are, after all...hand crafted pieces.

C) one brace is "slightly" larger than the other. NOBODY would ever notice it but I mention it just to be 100% accurate. ONE is 16 1/8" long while the other is 16 1/4" long. ONE is 11 3/8" wide while the other is 11 1/4" wide.

and finally

D) the pre-drilled mounting holes are a little "off" on one of them. Please refer to the pictures.

If you can find a way to make these work for you then feel free to take advantage of the price break. People always complain that you just CANNOT find really good STRONG braces for heavy projects (like holding up slab granite on islands and things like that)

This is a HEAVY set. Each (SINGLE) brace (alone) weighs ALMOST EIGHT POUNDS.

Hammered and scrolled SOLID Steel iron design to the center. The outer iron (LONGEST Side) strappings are etched on the interior (because that's the part that will show).

The iron strappings that mount to the wall (or island base) are 1 3/4" wide. The iron strappings on the top have NO mounting holes because this is typically the side that you will epoxy to the granite overhang or other application (and in that case you do NOT want holes on that side). They are 2" wide (to give you room for a good epoxy bead).
