Granite Tile Bar

Hey guys, Just finished my 3rd ever tile project. Floor was first (ceramic), then countertops (granite), then a bar (granite), I must say it would have been impossible to complete these projects without the help from the great and knowledgable people on this forum. THANK YOU, for all your help and advice.

Here are some pics. The floor in this pic was my first ever tile project. The bar was my 3rd tile project ever. Any ideas on improving this is appreciated. I need some sort of theme on the bar front. Sorry about the pic quality I had to compress them.

Thanks,
Torrey

Hi Torrey, looks nice.

With the front and side overhang, I'm wondering if you have some support under the plywood to keep that from sagging?

Yeh we bought some decorative gusset peices for look and support, I just haven't put them on yet. I really wonder if I need it? The overhang is only about 10 1/2". I have some 1X2 blocking underneath the cabinet portion for support.

Unless you really have some beefy plywood under there, you'll need the support. Tell us what you have for plywood layers, if you would.
