Unsupported span for 6/4 countertop

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I'm working on my bar build right now. The opening in the middle there is exactly 48", and will house the kegerator and the beverage cooler. The countertops are 6/4 sapele, so they are both rigid and heavy.

How necessary is it to support thespan? I plan to use at least a2x2 clear (radiata pine from Home Depot) screwed to the studs along the back. I feel like this should be sufficient, since if it wanted to sag it would be somewhat difficult if it were only unsupported in the front. It would be possible to do some sort of metal support between the appliances (they're both 23.5" wide) for additional support, but I don't know if that really buys me anything. It would also only support about 6" from the back wall, and I'm not sure how much that buys on a 25" deep countertop.

One Stick, All the Info

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


Measured drawings for some, story sticks for me (and others). I once had a job making a couple of wainscot chairs and chests for the National Park Service. After barely surviving the paperwork it took to get the job in …Source
