I want to replace my kitchen table with an eating bar. The eating bar will have a granite top. The top will be 72 x 30 x 1 1/4 granite. The base will be 66 x 10 x 40 3/4 and attached to the wall at one end and have a 16 in. wide panel at the other end for stability.
To support the weight of the granite top, the base has to be very sturdy. It can be attached to the wall at one end and the floor along its length.
I need help in how to construct the base. I am thinking it will be built of 2x4's or 2x6's and covered with MDF with an oak skin or with 1/4" oak plywood.
Thanks in advance.
