Thanks for the idea's on fastening the top with wooden cleats glued to the
underside of the granite.
Although it is not finished, it was far enough along to be useable and
present to SWMBO for Christmas, so I moved it into the kitchen for her to
use during the Holidays, and until I get the drawer and drawer assembly done
later this week.

As it turns out, the cleats work fine as placement guides for the top, and

Not a bad idea for the top to 'float', as the combined weight makes moving
this thing a task and the ability to easily remove the top is welcome.
