Kevin - 'remember the 6 & 10 rule'

12 years ago

Kevin, I'm embarrassed to admit I don't know what the 6 & 10 rule is -- & something tells me I SHOULD! We are planning an 8 1/2 ft. x 3ft. island with 15" overhang on the two short ends, - and a 12" overhang on the long side.

Our fabricator has been evasive in giving us a straight answer re: needed support. He says we'll discuss that when they come to template, which is somewhat understandable, but we really would like to know now in case we should consider making changes.

One fabricator said steel supports, which I would prefer, would cost $600.

One more thing, are the rules for granite basically the same for corian?

thank you so much for whatever help you can give us.
