    Can someone suggest an alternative to this Breakfast bar support

    I'm looking to support my breakfast bar and was thinking that these are a great idea https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/218510776/t-brace-countertop-support-bracket?variation0=568125073 but I can't find anywhere in the UK that stocks them and they are pretty expensive.
