Shelf supports in vanity

The bathroom vanity I got needs a shelve in the under-counter space.
One side
can easily be supported with the little peg-style supports because the
holes
would be through a verticle side inside the vanity. Unfortunately, the
other side
is at the exposed end of the vanity, so I would not want to drill
through.
So the question is how to support that side of the shelf. The end wall
is
1/2" particle board.

My current thoughts:

1. Put a collar on a drill bit to limit the depth to, say, 3/8".
Allowing for
the drill point, that should stop about 1/16" short of the outter
surface.
However, any little slip-up could spell disaster.

2. Get a length of 1/2" square hardwood stock and and glue it to the
inside surface. Clamping would be difficult, but perhaps
I could use some short screws to hold it in place while the glue
dries.

Which would be best? Any thing I've missed?

TIA

Cut a piece of plywood or whatever to fit inside the end panel, drill
holes in it. The shelves will hold it in place and it will hold up the
shelves.
Or if it's only one shelf you're installing then just cut that piece the
right height to fit under the shelf and slap it against the vanity wall
with a slathering of construction adhesive behind it.
