Diagonal chaseway (my invention) will be used to route water feed to and drain from hard-plumbed espresso machine on wet bar counter from water feed under sink and to drain under sink, respectively. Pipes are routed in wall via the chaseway through a hole in wall, just above counter to a hole in the wall under the sink, so no hole through the granite counter is needed. The two screws sticking out mark the center of the holes to be drilled in the wallboard.

The two thick tubes are for a kick-space heater to be installed under the leftmost cabinet. Heat flow calculations indicate this might be needed on the coldest days.
