    Confused Help Needed figuring out weight load of angle iron please

    My husband is building me 4 foot wide, 2 foot deep, 2 inch thick walnut live edge shelves. He is considering using angle iron to essentially slide the shelves onto for mounting. They probably weigh 50lbs per shelf without anything on them. My question is, will angle iron support them if we use it on three sides? So for instance the entire length of the back 40" and 20 inches on each side? He picked up 1/8th x 3/4" angle iron from Lowes. Thanks in advance!

    How is he intending to attach the side pieces to the back piece?
    How will the supporting structure be attached to the wall?
    What is the wall made of?
    What do you intend to put on the shelf (how heavy)?
