Attaching to wall

Recently took out our small love seat and want to install a desk. Have ordered a desk top made out of similar corian used in our Kitchen counters. Would like to attach 1x2's to the three walls defining the space for desk top and then set the desk top on top of these supports. These walls are made up of Kitchen cabinet and a long and short wall of a Slide out. What is best way to attach the 1x2's to the slide out walls?

Thank you,

I would think the use of a stud finder to locate wall studs, then level, and use drill point screws into studs. One screw per stud would be enough. Use a construction adhesive to lay top on. Just one idea.

Have you thought about Liquid Nails? At least it would be permanent.

One drawback to that, the next owner may want to put the couch back in. I just sold my MH that I installed a desk, but I offered it for sale with both floor plans. The desk was removable with two screws.
