Hi Rich , yes the clips are from Rockler . As you know the cabinets are not very strong so you can see I added 3/4 solid oak piece to cabinet front . Watch ,where Escape has your wiring up on frame. I used cut off piece from table front ,which is a little heavy .I also added 1/4 solid pieces of oak on shelf bottom that go between cabinet oak piece and wood where clips are attached to shelf ,that adds support, . I was thinking of making piece out of solid pine , like my bed shelf , which would be lighter . But for now thinking this will work . Someday may make whole new sink top . You can see by door a couple years ago had cut that table down , I leave it up all the time and now is not in my way going in and out door . My water jug sits there . I think adding to front of sink gives me the counter for a little food prep , like making sandwiches etc. used to have to put on bed which I don't want to do . Like TV will remove shelf for travel . It is pretty strong and not in the way of isle or bath door . Hope this makes sense . Later could take a few more pics . Pat
