I have a cabinet that is 30L x 15h x 12 deep I would like to have an open end microwave shelf that won't impede my counter space something I can attach to the studs for support.

Put microwave over stove. Take hood away. Either add a cabinet to go dn to backsplash or if you want microwave there. They sell under the cabinet that attached though bottom of cabinet. Lowe's will install for you. But not hard.home depot, best buy all carry.

I agree with Travis about removing the vent hood and install a microwave with vent over the stove. Remove the short cabinet and install 3 vertical open shelves in its place.

You should be able to have a carpenter build in the microwave. I can't believe how many people don't build in or use a cabinet for their microwave. Don't put the microwave over the stove, I have it in 2 houses and don't like it. You might want to update the fan over the stove.

Good idea about shelves breaks up wood too.

Guess its just personal preference about the microwave being located over the cooktop. I have that configuration and like it. I am tall though!
