I am preparing to do a cherry bar rail on a granite bartop. I am using a one-piece, two step 6” X 1 1/2” rail moulding in 8’ lengths for a 24’ bar. I plan on putting a 6” wide run of plywood under the granite, with 3” protruding to fit in the notch in the rail. I will have to pad the plywood up 3/16” to account for the thickness of the granite. Anyone had experience with this sort of thing? If so, any tips would be GREATLY appreciated as this is my first.

It seems to me that leaving a 3” over-hang to accept the rail is quite a bit (?)
I might cut that in half and leave 1 1/2” or 2”. Although that would depend on how much ‘under the bar’ leg room you want. If it will be primarily a “stand up” bar, you don’t need 9” overall.
Looks you have a handle on the rest… Bump up that granite where you need it.
