I'm planning to install base cabinets. In the end of a run I have a
dishwasher and an end panel with a stile. I'll have Silestone
countertop. So the question is whether the end panel itself will be
enough to support the counter, or do I need to build special support?
Being at the end, someone is likely to sit on the counter. I would add a
2x3(or 2x4) frame just behind the end panel for extra strength.
I have seen counters cantilevered with no support but I don't know how far
you can go with Silestone. Probably not 30"
