So , ....Learner......   You have some good ideas.  Top. bottom, etc., get back to the stud.........all good.

The problem is the case of Brad's file box may well sag if hung,  as per your suggestion, without complete bottom support.  Antiques can fall apart if you look at them wrong.  What I was suggesting lets Brad incorporate his find into a usable piece of furniture that just happens to be able to span an old radio .

Your ideas, maybe with some bigger angles supporting a full shelf under the whole works could be a viable option .  Just L brackets, I'll pass.  More and more , I'm noticing how much TIME goes by and how it affects some previously thought GREAT Ideas.......usually to the negative.

Put stuff together so it looks good and will stand the TEST of TIME....... ;)

Good point Lud. I wasn't thinking about sag just the main support. Maybe I mis-understood but judging by the vertical blue tape and the size of the cabinet, it can be mounted using both wall studs.
That should spread the load enough to prevent sag. But simply moving the radio a bit and supporting the cabinet with it is a better option.

It's all in Brad's lap now.  He started the thread;  asked for advice; got plenty of it;  Maybe he'll let us know what he chose to do................... ??? ???

Finally getting back to my hobbies on November 7th... been really tied up lately, but I won't mention with what because if I even breath a word related, however non-specific, this thread will get deleted. 

Lud, I understand your idea now.  I had been confused by the slanted part, but I see now.  I would like to go this route.  I have some black walnut I could use, but it's going to have to wait until a few other projects get done.  Maybe I should just screw some pine 2x material together as a mock up to use and try out how I like it until I have to time to make a furniture quality one?  Yes a quick mock up would kill two birds, to make sure I'm happy with the arrangement, and get it in use right away.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Glad you got back to the collective us, Brad.  Yeah, a  couple of 2 x 4's and a flat of ply would let you get a feel for usage vis a vis the relationship of top-of-the-radio to bottom-of the file.  That zone could be the future desk carcass zone.   If you can't see what's on the top shelf of the file , you can always use it for blank paper storage. :D :D
