Nice remodel, but I'm curious why steel countertop brackets weren't used in place of the leg for the overhang support at the bar area?

hsmeghan - regarding drawers holding heavy weights. We renovated our kitchen 15 years ago and have used a drawer to hold our dishes - 3 pc service for 12 along with miscellaneous bowls. Not sure how much weight is in the drawer but we have never had a problem with it.

Hi jennyhg! I assume steel brackets would have had to attach to extra support in the wall to hold that amount of weight (those countertops are HEAVY!). And they would have impeded the cabinets in terms of taking up a little room inside and throwing off the way the doors line up on the outside. As I recall, Tracey had proposed having the counter bump out less so as not to require the leg, but the homeowners preferred to have some more countertop space there with the leg supporting it.
