@Sparktrician Willy, can you get me a picture? I am a visual guy  [embarassed] and would like to see how you did it.

Thanks a bunch  [smile]

@Mario Turcot, my drawings (attached as a PDF file) are a bit cryptic and crude, so if you have questions, please PM me.  I seem to think I have better drawings around, so I'm going to keep looking.

From my notes on the computer:
If using the Imperial system, space cleats at 12", 30", 48", 66" and 84" AFF, measured to the bottom of the beveled surface on the stationary cleat.  The delta is 18".  Use a minimum of two cleats per cabinet so any cabinet is supported by no less than two cleats.  Base cabinets are supported by two+ cleats plus two Ikea Capita (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60263574/) legs at the front for strength and to make under-cabinet cleaning easier.  Leg height is set to 115mm AFF (level floor).  Leg adjustment range is from 110mm (4-3/8") to 120mm (4-3/4") . 

Four standard cabinet heights (Imperial):
31-1/2", 2 cleats
49-1/2", 3 cleats
67-1/2", 4 cleats
85-1/2", 5 cleats

Point of bottom cleat bevel spaced 7-1/2" above cabinet bottom, then every 18". 


Taking new direction this weekend. I will modify the French cleat attachment as per  Willy and Richard suggestion. The only thing is the screw to keep it in place, I'd like to find a tool less way like a

Willy, I am on my way to Ikea to get those legs and will modify my Kapex stand using those. Thanks again for the tip.

@Mario Turcot, I've cleaned up the drawing and replaced the cruder ones in the original post.  Hope this clarifies that concept.   [smile]
