|Freesail99||I know someone who used 3/4 star broad for the counter top. They wet sanded it and it looked great.|

|aruggiero||We just replaced the countertops on our boat with the same problem - the teak trim around the outside. We could not get the trim off. We got a router bit - roman-ogee is what it was called and it beveled the edge of the laminate beautifully and made beautiful little bevel on the top of the trim. I will send you photos if you like. firstname.lastname@example.org|

Geary...3 year old thread but yes...with the sink the answer is the same. Suggest an off white patterned Formica as it will show less wear and look cleaner...set off by varnished teak. Something like this:
Say whatcha want...Hunter knows how to put together an interior with eye appeal and spouse appeal!

Counter top...and sinks, etc
appreciate the advice. how does one do the above, with a sink in the middle of it? Same process ? yank the sink, yank the trim, sand, clean, glue, then route / dremel the edges (including the holes)?
Also, out of curiousity...what's the formica / wood color of choice? white / white paint, or white / varnished teak?

As a cabinet maker for thirty years I''ve started some jobs that I regret but gianed experience through them an old craftsman told me that a good carpenter,cabinetmaker can fix a botched job and make things look like they belong there. I agree buy the tools, but be able to think outside of the box if you don''t have or can''t get what you need. End of sermon

As a carpenter, I am glad I have a day job. I have the worst possible set of characteristics--I''m very fussy, a perfectionist, have little experience, less skill, and am willing to try anything (on the boat only--wife won''t let me touch the house). The end result is VERY slow projects............
