CLAIMS:

1. A panel comprising:

a first layer of material;

a second layer of material;

a filler material between the first layer of material and the second layer of material; and

a bracket connected to the first layer of material, the bracket having a bottom flange spaced from the first layer of material, the filler material being between the first layer of material and the bottom flange securing the first layer of material to the filler material.

2. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket has a non-linear shape.

3. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket has a top flange connected to the first layer of material.

4. The panel of claim 3, wherein the top flange is spaced from the bottom flange so that the filler material is between the top flange and the bottom flange securing the first layer of material to the filler material.

5. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the top flange is connected to the bottom flange by a connector flange, and wherein the connector flange extends in a direction so that the top flange and the bottom flange are spaced apart.

8. The panel of claim 5, wherein the connector flange extends in a direction so that the bracket is spaced from a locking mechanism that connects the panel with another panel.

7, The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket forms a C-shape.

8. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket forms a Z-shape.

9. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket forms a J-shape.

10. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket has a length between 0,0001 inches and a length of the first layer of material.

. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket is a material from the group consisting of metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, and any combination thereof.

12. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket has a thickness between 0.0001 inches and a thickness between the first layer of material and the second layer of material.

3. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the bracket is connected to the first layer of material by an attachment selected from the group consisting of adhesives, tapes, glues, screws, rivets, nails, staples, and any combination thereof.

14. The panel of claim 1 , wherein the first layer of material forms a structure, wherein the bracket is a plurality of brackets, and wherein one of the plurality of brackets is positioned at each corner of the structure.

15. The panel of claim 13, wherein one of the plurality of brackets is positioned between two corners of the structure.

18. The panel of claim 1 , further comprising a receiving portion that connects the panel to a component selected from the group consisting of a floor, a wall, a ceiling, another panel, and any combination thereof, wherein the first layer of material forms a structure, wherein the bracket is a plurality of brackets, and wherein one of the plurality of brackets is positioned at the receiving portion.

17. A method of claim 1 for making a panel, the method comprising:

providing a first layer of material on a surface;

providing a bracket having a bottom flange that is spaced from the first layer of material;

connecting the bottom flange to the first layer of material;

dispensing filler material between the bottom flange and the first layer of material; placing a second layer of material on the filler material.

18. The method of claim 17, further comprising inserting a fastener through the first layer of material and a top flange.
