    How to laminate countertops

 

You will find a huge selection of colors along with textures of plastic laminate, but not many are available in stock prefabricated countertops. The less ordinary colors are expensive if you order special , but when you laminate your own personal, it could possibly save you money and acquire the precise look you want. Plastic laminate is a thin sheet of plastic that is glued right down to a wood surface.. The plan shown here utilizes shop grade plywood. The sides of the top shown listed here are completed with oak trim. Whereas you might have considered trying to place on plastic laminate to the sides, but that job might be tough process.

 

 

 

 1. Cut out ¾ -inch plywood to the required length plus width. In order that you are able to developed the countertop thicker than simply one sheet of plywood, cut four 4-inch wide strips of wood to build up the sides. Put on yellow glue to the faces on your strips in addition to the underside edges of the top. Then, with all edges flush, screw the strips to the wood , using 1 ¼ inch drywall screws. Additionally install three 4 inch wide crosspieces sandwiched between the edge for added strength. On the extent surface, unfolded the plastic laminate face down, than place the wood top over it also face down. Mark your cutting lines on the plastic laminate sheet under side so it measures ½ inch wider than the length and width of the plywood top to permit for trimming later.

 

 

2. Cut the plastic laminate face down having a circular saw using a laminate cutting blade, cut it face up using a laminate knife in addition to a table saw having a laminate cutting blade. Lay the plastic laminate and also wood top face down, side by side, over a dust free, smooth surface, and wipe them both. Pour contact cement in a paint tray, working with a soft nap roller, place a coating of contact cement to both surfaces according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Let the cement dry to your touch.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Whereas both surfaces are dry to your feel, lay ¼ inch wood dowels on top of your plywood top every 12 inches to keep both materials from each other until you would be able to place then simultaneously. The moment they've glue, you will not have the ability of pull them from each other. Working with a helper, gently put the sheet of plastic laminate finish surface up over the wood dowels, being cautious by no means to allow both cemented surfaces to the contact each other. Then at one end, take each dowel across the top to permit an integral part of laminate in making contact with the countertop. You mustn't let any bulges. After that, remove the wood dowels.

 

 

 

 

 

4. Getting a plastic laminate roller, utilize pressure to your surface of your countertop this could assured the bond plus eliminate any air bubbles. You mustn't expect to repair bulges for the time being it's too late. Roll in all directions to make sure the contact between the plastic laminate and as well the countertop stick.

 

 

5. Getting a router that  features a self- piloting trim bit or you have to use a plastic laminate trimmer, trim the surplus laminate so it is going to be flush with the edge of your counter top. You may even utilize a file set at a very small angle.

 

 

6. Cut strips of hardwood trim to frame the sides of the countertop. Sand then nail them into the sides by means of finishing nails. Counter sink the nail and fill every nail holes. After that sand the wood, and finish it to your preference. Instantly wipe away any finish that gets over the plastic laminate. At the moment would you believe that you're able to build your new kitchen countertops.
