Kitchen table -- granite slab top
I'm planning on using some of my countertop granite to have a table top made. The table will be about 60"x36", and abut the island. It will not be attached to the island, just sit next to it.
The supporting table will be cherry. I'm contemplating buying one of the table base kits from someone like tablelegs.com, but not sure whether they strong and stiff enough for a granite top.
This is 2cm granite, with the edge laminated to make 4cm. For the cabinets, it is installed over 5/8" plywood, so that would be my default choice for the table.
How much deflection can be allowed? I've been using the "Sagulator" to calculate sag of the table apron. The plywood will provide a small amount of additional stiffness, as will the granite itself, but I'm not including those.
Any other good construction suggestions would be appreciated.
