Welcome to the site!

I also think 24” of hang is probably too much for even a lag bolt, especially considering you’re dropping a sink into the coutertop. No matter how strong your connection is between the counter/frame and the wall, it will feel wobbly if it’s not supported further out. Which is not a feeling someone wants when they’re washing their hands or leaning on the counter. You can probably find fairly non-obtrusive shelving brackets at a home center that will suit your purposes. Or, if you know how to weld (or know a local welder) they could easily fabricate something that would provide much more support underneath the shelf.

Let us know if you need more help with your project. There are lots of smart people on here that I’ve learned a lot from. We look forward to seeing what you come up with. Again, welcome to Lumberjocks!
