How much of a hang over do you need on both sides of the kitchen bar counter?
I think 6 inches. If you plan to sit at the bar, then you would want up to two feet, so a person could sit comfortably at the bar.

Why does the granite counter top feel so much cooler than the wood on top of the island in our kitchen even though both are room temperature?
Granite has a higher specific heat than wood, therefore it takes more energy to raise the temperature of granite than wood. Resting your hand on the counters allows heat from …your hand to transfer to each counter top, since wood's specific heat is lower it quickly heats up to equilibrium with your hand, while the granite still require more energy to heat up to the same temperature as your hand, thus it feels cool as heat is transfered from you to the granite.

It's highly recommended. If you have two appliances that consume 1100 watts each, like a microwave and a coffee machine, that's already 20 amps right there (assuming North …American voltage). Don't forget to use outlets with ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) near any area that may get wet. Kitchen counters use a three wire split receptacle. The common tie bar on the hot side of the receptacle is removed. The red wire is connected to the top terminal and the black wire of the three wire cable it connected to the bottom terminal of the receptacle. The white wire is connected as in all receptacles to the silver coloured screws on the receptacle. The bare copper ground wire connects to the green ground screw This gives you a full 15 amps on the top half of the receptacle and a full 15 amps on the bottom of the receptacle. This is a dedicated circuit that goes directly back to the distribution panel. These types of outlet are spaced at six foot intervals along the entire kitchen counter.
