Is my island overhang too big...or is the whole thing wrong? PICS

12 years ago

Please take a look at my proposed island top and tell me what you think. Ignore the mess, please. My island will be two inch end grain can see a small sample in the pics. The first THREE pictures show the island at 48"X44" with clipped corners. The overhang is 18" with two corbels for support. The corbels come out 11" so there is seven inches past the corbels. We definitely have space in the room for this size, but I don't want my top to dwarf my little island or have the overhang be top heavy on that side. Know what I mean? The last picture shows the island cut back two inches to 42" so it would have more like a 16" overhang. What do you think? I also want to have a three inch overhang on the two sides. Does anyone think that will be a bad move? The deal here is I made my island base too small to begin with and I am trying to have my wood top as large as possible without it looking stupid.

Any and all comments are welcome... I can take it. HA!
