Re: Galley countertop refinishing
Jim, since your counter top is about 6 ft by 2 ft, one sheet of Formica (or high pressure plastic laminate) will be enough material to do the job. It comes 4 ft wide by 8,10 and 12 ft long. Lowes should have a selection. Think I spent $46.00 on a sheet of off white.
If you can get the fiddles (pretty sure thats the term for the wood edge treatment) off then trimming the Formica to the counter top edge is a snap. I've laid formica down before, its no big deal. Corian will not be within the $50.00 range. Its heavy, thick and expensive.
Looks like you can get to most of the edge with a router to trim the formica. What you can't get to with the router, use a mill bastard file.
