Thanks Gordon !

However, I would need to remove the shelf because I want to secure it with bolts+nuts. I'm not sure self tapping screws alone will hold the weight.

If it can't be done then I'll simply forget about the bolts+nuts and get over with it..


There is a lot of room to drill through from below... I mean, not an inch or anything, but if you mark your drill bit you should be fine. Don' t make it too complicated!
