Thanks for any and all ideas.”

Why not screw it directly to the wall?

Are you planning on moving the upper cabinets around the room several times a year? Maybe I’m missing something and it works best in your application, like a cabinet display at a convention.

But, It takes more work and wood to use a cleat system. It forces the cabinets out 3/4” and leaves a gap on the side unless you fill it. Kitchen cabinet installers don’t use them 99.9%....right?

Just screw it to the wall. It’s much stronger. If you move it for some reason, screw it to the wall again.

Cleats suck as hangers for anything else. Speaking in general, I just don’t get this love affair with cleats.

but, like I said, maybe it works best in your case.
