Support Your Local Kitchen Counter
By buffalo-roam.com on Jun 20, 2012
When our granite was being installed, the granite guys had a bit of an accident and we ended up with a crack in our island.
Nah, neither can I. They did a good job of fixing it. However, since we’ve got some decent overhang, they suggested we add some support so the crack wouldn’t get worse over time.
Enter D and his fancy pants idea.
Not that he was wearing very fancy pants.
We had some extra cedar laying around, so he cut three posts. One for each end, and a third in the middle near the fault line.
Then to distribute the weight throughout a bit better, he “ripped” a couple boards to affix to the counter itself, as well as the posts.
A pretty simple fix that could potentially save us thousands later.
I love how it turned out. It fits the kitchen perfectly.
Now if I could just find some bar stools!
