Countertop Support Legs – Excess countertop on a functional and unique table is a great way to avoid wastage. An allowance with the legs makes an excellent cutting surface and can be used as a matching kitchen island that is mobile or fixed. The matching appearance of the countertop is accentuated when the supporting legs are stained or painted to match the color of the furniture that is placed under the rest of the countertop.

Retention by two 2-by-2-by-36-inch boards of the leg with the help of an assistant. Bridge the two legs by placing a 1/2-by-4-by-24-inch support plate through them. Drill two holes from the top of the support plate, sinking down on the top of the legs. Insert 2-inch wood screws into the exposed holes. Tighten the wood screws in the holes with the drill.

Place 2-inch wood screws in each hole and tighten completely, being careful not to pinch the surface of the countertop.
