Thank you for all the responses. This forum is a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate you all taking the time to respond and explain!

You had me sold on using cleats instead of a frame, but I’ve run into a new problem. When I went to measure out 24 inches from the back wall, I discovered that the stud on one side started at about 23 3/4” from the wall…I wouldn’t be able to screw the front of one cleat to a stud. After much swearing and head scratching, I figured I could either:
1. Use heavy duty toggle bolts to attach that end of the cleat to the drywall
2. Support the countertop on that side with a bracket ( as suggested above). I know Lowe’s carries a 22” bracket with 500lb capacity, and I figure I could attach it to the stud along the back wall.
