Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

If you are good at making woodwork internal joints, my dad made me four wooden brackets which held my layout up. He always made sure that the layout would take someone's weight, and it did as when we were screwing on the heavy baseboards (One inch thick chipboard) we were both on the board so it took both of our weights at the same time. The layout had no legs.
My dad was a carpenter which did help.

The important bit is that the upright has four big screws securing it to the wall (in my case straight into the shed uprights) which spreads the load over a nice big area.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm explaining why you are wrong.
