With rich new laminates from Wilson-Art and tips gleaned from over 23 years of experience, Douglas Smith (the countertop guy) shows, with step-by-step instructions, how you can create custom wood edge countertops that will amaze and astound your customers.
You’ll see cutting, gluing, and fastening instructions, along with safety tips, for building L-shaped countertops and backsplashes and then attaching rounded wood edges. The camera is so close and clear you can almost smell the glue as you watch Douglas create the perfect pressured seam, or make gluing laminate using dowel rods actually appear easy. He quickly routes laminate with the precision of a dentist. The only thing you’ll miss is the whine of the router and the background noise, as Smith aptly constructs in front of your eyes.
He shows you how to apply the rounded wood edges – taping the wood edges with strapping tape while gluing. You’ll also see how to attach the backsplashes with glue and screws, install countertops securely to cabinets, and lay out and cut the openings for sinks and stove tops.
After watching this video and seeing how easy it is to apply custom edges to laminate countertops, you’ll be able to create a reasonably-priced alternative to granite that you can offer your customers.
