Hello, I am looking for some advice on how to support a contempory style bench for a kitchen nook. I want the bench to have the appearance of floating. I have looked at federal brace and the Fastcap speedbrace but I don't have an experience with these products. They appear to hold a heavy countertop, but sitting on them? Has anybody used these before?

What's it look like...cantilevered?..... shelf like? Legs at one end? protruding from the wall etc...No answers until you provide more details. A sketch would help. bill
The best advice is from someone who has actually done the operation, owns the same or similar tool or machine and who has experience with the material. BTDT? But that advice is "free", so take your chances ... you get what you pay for.
Either of those two brackets could work. You might want to shroud the bracket to keep it from view. That can be done with an edging on the bench. Or, you could just construct the bench with triangulated supports, and screw the bench to the wall at the studs. No need to have legs or a base.
