Two Tier Island
I am adding a 2nd tier to an existing Islad. I am looking for alternatives in securing the 2nd tier base, The olan is to have a 4" wide wall as a platform for our new "bar" Tier on the island. It will be 42" tall; 87" long and the counter top will be 15" deep, 3cm granite. Our floor is laminate. one end has a support column. Existing counter has Sink, dishwasher and 2 cabinets.
Any suggestions?

Too many distractions in the post.
What countertop do you have now?
Are you putting electric on the tier?
Simple answer, screw the tier to the top.

Counterplates.. Just mortoise the 1/4" off the top plate of the half wall.. Install counterplates a little out of level favoring the overhang side..
