Leg support for granite 16" overhang on kitchen peninsula that is 60"x42".


We will be supporting one side of counter to the wall, but our question is once the slab is in how do we install the leg. Can we just glue top of leg that is 4"x4" to the granite or must we glue a separate piece of wood or something else to the granite and then accommodate the leg. Also, do you think we need to support the middle of overhang and what would be the easiest and least obvious way of doing that?

Hey Momma

Have your granite shop mount a bolt style clip to the bottom of the granite and then use an epoxy to glue it into place... try Latapoxy 310.
That will form somewhat of a dowell joint and lock it into place

A single free standing leg will be weak and easy to knock out of place ---I would need to see a sketch

or picture---I think you need a skirt board --or possibly attach to the floor and the counter top--

One kick or one bang from a vacuum cleaner would be likely to break a glue bond of that size.

For the bottom I would install 2 floor bolts, zip a dado across the bottom of the post and trim out the bottom with a shoe or cove trim. At least that's one way to do it... Drawings always help
