I'm fixing two spring hinged folding shelf support brackets to an interior brick wall to hold a 70" x 15" shelf, which will not carry a lot of weight. I will probably fit the supports about 15 inches in from either end (unless you think otherwise) and put on a shelf that is 1/2 inch thick. Which is best to use? Contiboard, plywood, MDF or chipboard? I'm concerned that the shelf will start to sag in the middle. My preference was contiboard as it is easy to clean and the price is comparitive with MDF and chipboard. Plywood seems a lot more expensive. I had considered buying a cheap flush door and cutting it down the middle, but I guess it will then be hollow at the cut edge (?) Thank you for any responses.
