Table Support


Looking for some ideas that maybe I haven't considered for supporting this table.

Table will be 3'x3' with some type of center mounted post that will get wrapped with tile or stone. Will also have ledger on cabinet and I am thinking a 6x6 post with 3/4 plywood and double up the edge of the granite to hide the plywood.

I have blocking in floor for whatever I use.

thanks,

Re: Table Support


Does it have to be in the center? If not, maybe this would work.

Re: Table Support


I would not use a 6x6 or anything else that is unstable. Plywood or engineered lumber and or steel.

I was thinking of using this type bolted to floor and top along with ledger on cabinet to tie it all together.
