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

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

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