So just like the title says, I want to make a kitchen bar to open up so floor space and throw out my table. My plan is this: I have two of those 9 cube cubby shelfs (like these ones here: http://www.menards.com/main/storage-organization/closet-organization/cubes-drawers/whalen-9-cube-cubby/p-1469355-c-12646.htm) that i would put side by side.  The measure 36"x36"X11", the counter I'm looking at is a 6'x25" fusion granite countertop shown here- http://www.menards.com/main/home-decor/countertops-laminate/6-ft-fusion-granite-countertop/p-1318707-c-3629.htm
    I would than use about 4 evenly spaced 36" balusters to the front to provide balance.

    Here's the question- Will it work?   I've never done anything with countertops before and have no idea what kind of support they require.  Do they need all over support, or are they pretty sturdy by themselves?  If i put it together like this will it end up collapsing?
