my husband is in the process of redoing our kitchen he's put up cabinets but even though we've purchased the countertop a laminate wilsonart from lowes, we're having a hard time getting it in. if someone who KNOWS and has done a few in the past could please get in touch with me. i have a L shape kitchen and what i need is someone to help me with the cut that will meet this L if you can't tell by know yes my walls are throwing us off and is not a perfect 90% angel. again only IF YOU've done this in the past email me or call me at this is a small job so i just need one person and i think it could be done in under and hour so call or email me with how much you're going to charge no third parties please SMALL JOB. thanks

these are pictures to show u. my saw won't cut straight.



one more cut you can do to help would be to cut this one piece to place on another cabinet but is not as important as the top one.




And she thinks it can be done in under an hour by 1 Person. I e-mailed her and told her TREEE-FIDDDY!!

Not gonna happen in an hour, or with that top either, unless you have a portable radial arm with a 36" travel. Stock HD tops will get you in this quality level........for around $475 installed.

It will do the job, the last bit of the back splash is a bit tricky.

Yup, one mitered counter top, one bill for 650.00, thanks for being a stupid HO!!

Tell her to keep at it. Eventually the sawzall will cut a straight line. Just about the time the jungle full of monkeys type War and Peace.

I recommend using the opposite end of the caulk tube and filling the gap with silicone as it is prone to moisture exposure.

Re: CounterTop Help Looks LIke TREE-FIDDY


Anyone who is going to do that job will end up buying them a new countertop, I can bet anything on it. and they will end up doing the new top with the template, as it should be done in the first place.

I never seen anyone attempt to cut mica top in the field which will be joined in the most visible part of the kitchen. I can see trimming the top near the wall where can be easily covered with backsplash, but doing that cut in the field, I don't care if you use TS-75, C500 or Space Saw 2000 its not happening

Re: CounterTop Help Looks LIke TREE-FIDDY


the TS 75 would do the job. But might fall short on the backsplash portion. It may not go deep enough.
