I'm having 2cm granite counters installed. But we have run into a problem with the 30 inch drop in range.
Our installer has suggested we use approx 1-1/2 to 2inch plywood to get the granite to fit into the sides of the range. With that in mind we will have a little more than an inch of plywood/trim visable throughout. I'm not too happy about the trim showing under the peninsula. Also, the bullnose edge is only 1-1/2 and will go out about and inch from the corbels. Our other option is to use 5/8 plywood. But now we will have an inch and a half of our range sitting above the granite countertop. Please help. P.S. I purchased prefab granite slabs, and cannot get a larger custom edge. Because the range is about 1-1/2 inch taller than the 2cm granite countertop. Plywood will have to be placed directly on the cabinets, to raise the height of the counters to come up to the height of the range. But the bullnosed edge (off of a 2cm prefab slab) will not cover the plywood trim or stripe edges around the entire countertop. So there will be about an 1-1/2 of plywood trim/stripe edge visable. If we only use 5/8 inch plywood for support of the granite. We will not see the trim/edge, hopefully it will be completely covered by the bullnose (installer can't guarantee it). BUT now approx 1-1/2 or more of the side of the range will sit over the countertop, and the metal siding of the range will be completely visable. So its a lose lose situation. Any help would be truly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not sure that I understand where exactly the plywood is going...is the range taller than the rest of the counters and are you using the plywood to raise the height of the counter to the height of the range... More

cut a hole in the drop in portion ( the toe kick ) & drop the range into the hole on a platform build at the height you need to make it work, if drawer below - lose the drawer & afix the drawer face to the drawer hole & do the same!
