free standing granite island
 
I want to put a 48"x27" black granite on four 6"x6" lesgs that are 33 inches tall. I am going to put three quater ply under the granite. Will this work.... Thanks

You want to span 4' with just 3/4" plywood ??

Just Bill 12-31-2010 05:45 PM

Nothing below, other than 4 legs, plywood??? Cross bracing??? I am skeptical. Maybe box/joists bracing the top, between the posts.

Is that not thick enough. Using the 6x6 legs. trying to open the space. thanks

if i have to support the lower legs i will. just not sure if this is going to work. open to ideas

I was just wondering if there were going to be cabinets under this at all
3/4" plywood will not hold up granite without more support
2x4's boxing in between the legs at a bare min
Myself I'd want 2x6's I think...depending upon the thickness of the granite
And a brace across the middle too

nt o keep it ope and use stools like a breakfast counter. do you think three sides of bracing will work.

If you want support that will not stick out use steel tubular metal for support
