Countertop refitting

1479 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  gedaggett
If there is anyone in the Southern Lake Michigan area who is thinking about redoing their counter tops with new laminate, please consider me for the work. I can do a simple removal and replacement of the laminate or a complete reproduction counter piece if needed. I will give a competitive price and will guarantee my craftsmanship. I Program and operate CNC routers so precision is not an issue. I would remove the entire piece and take it to my shop and return with a completed piece. Below is an example of work I did for Sailchick20 on her Beneteau First305. The galley counter top will be completed this off season. You can PM me if you want me to come take a look at what you have and put together a quote (All proceeds go Gary's first boat buying fund) Thank you for any consideration.


After complete reproduction


(I also plumbed the new sink to the through-hull)

Looks good. Speaking for myself, I use marine ply for the countertop. If it's for a shelf in a cabinet or some such thing I sometimes use exterior ply - depends what I have in the scrap bin. I almost always use epoxy as i have seen contac cemented laminate lift after some years and the epoxy protects the wood as well. Does require some ingenuity to keep in place until set for big pieces though!
