will you make your decision based on advice here or are you just curious what advice you will get
you should approach this with facts not internet advice
how much weight will they support how much does the granite weigh
granite is not that great a counter top unless you just want it for looks

not sure what happens to that if you drop your kitchen aid mixer there

A piece of poplar the size of a trunk can support an entire tree... which weighs a ton more than a tabletop slab of rock.
