Anchoring a Kitchen Island


A client of mine has a kitchen island that's 48" wide and 24" deep. She wants to install a slab of granite on top of it, with a 15" overhang on three sides. I'll be installed corbels to support the overhang but haven't decided how to best anchor the island itself to the floor.

The last thing I need is a $3,000 slab of granite tipping over onto someone.

Any recommendations?

Bolt cleats to the floor and screw the cabinets to the cleats.

What kind of floor do you have to work with?

It's 3/4" maple solid hardwood on top of 3/4" plywood subflooring.

Do you have clear access from below?
If so, do what Ron suggested.
Cleats and lag bolts are the easiest and safest way to do this.
