Those are really nice ones. Mine are just some plain sawed off planks that I cut on a table saw. Congrats. That looks beautiful.

thanks, I ordered them form ebay. about $4 for a set of 2 so I ordered 5 sets to have a few backups plus I'm still waitig for a corner ledge and a play ledge. wish I had the meas to make my own. one day maybe. I did habe to go to lowes and get new screws and wingnuts becayse tese ledges just came with regular screws. that would be a pain in the ass to clean and move every time, wingnuts, not so much.

Get stud bolts and wingnuts to go over them. To install the bolts you can put two wingnuts going opposite directions and lock them together then twist.
