Here's a realy bad picture of my galley, for reference. I haven't measured it, but it's roughly 6' long (might be closer to 6.5') and MAYBE 2' wide. It has cut-outs for the sink, a storage compartment behind the sink, the stove area, and the ice box. The ice box and storage compartment lids match the counter.

Even epoxy cuts and slices. Make a pattern from butcher paper then go have one cut from corian.
I'm not really looking at this as a long-term solution. I just want something to clean up the galley for a year or two until we figure out a more permanent solution. Though I probably should get an estimate for having a "real" counter made.
Yours is also the second time Corian was mentioned. Is Corian much lighter than granite? I've seen a few places where my countertops could be made from the cut-offs of other customers' granite counters.
Aeventyr60, I misunderstood your suggestion. I thought you were saying to buy an entire countertop (including the substrate) rather than just the layer of plastic. That's not a bad idea.
Julie, the bar looks really nice! I'll have to look into how hard it will be to take off the trim if I decide to go with another layer of mica.
Hmmm...sounds like a lunchtime trip to Lowes is in order...
