lol, your island (which looks great, nice fab job and finish) is almost bigger then my whole kitchen.

The table is pushed against the wall with no chairs on the other side.

Uhmmmm....has anyone given any thought to the stresses that will be exerted on the floor? Is this a concrete floor?

My wife would like to not use legs for support and I'd like to not use corbels either.
So, I'm thinking of cantilevering some square tubing over the length of the cabinets and almost to the edge of the overhang, spaced at about 18". Then using some metal plate, 1/4" or 3/8", (48" x 90") under the entire slab, attaching it to the tubing (either weld or screws) and filling in around it with plywood. Then covering with some trim under the granite edges.
Anyone think this will work? have a better way?
My husband is a granite fabricator for 15 yrs. Anything over 20" you should use legs or stiffknee; corbels would not support more than 24". A 12" corbel or L bracket would not support more than 24"
