That will mean your stove will be 3" lower then the counter
How are you raising the cabinets ?
What will cover the 3" "gap" under the cabinets ?

Just curious,
What height are your base cabinets now including the countertop? Should be about 36". If they are, why do you want to raise them 3"? I have done that with vanities in the past, but never with kitchen bases.
