    Hi All

    I am re-wiring a snap cabin within our warehouse and have also been asked to put new breakfast bars in for the lads to sit at at break times to eat their snap.

    I am fully confident with the joinery involved but was wondering if anybody could suggest how often a support leg is required to support the worktop. The longest straight run in just over 5.5m long.

    I know it is not an electrical question, sorry..

    Any suggestions??

    id just use a bit of common sense on this one and use the stools or chairs to guide the distance between the supports i.e. a gap reasonable to fit 2 chairs under, in your case see if you can divide into 3 spaces thus giving room for 6 stools and still maintain good support.
    Not the usual post i answer but il try anything.

    28mm laminate worktop will be used, 2 by 1 screwed to wall to support back edge.
