Follow These Easy Steps

  1. Attach the wood strips to the bottom and back edges of the countertop with wood glue. These are used to support the end cap because the substrate alone isn't thick enough.

  2. Position the end cap on the cut end of the countertop and align the angle and corner with the contour of the countertops surface.

  3. Maintain that alignment as you run a hot iron over the end cap to activate the adhesive.

  4. After the glue and end cap have cooled, finish the edges.

Put the drawers back in place and reinstall the doors and you're good to go.

You can order your countertops precut including a hole for the sink. Do this only if you know all your measurements exactly. If you do not you will need to do the cutting yourself.

Follow these steps:
Most sinks come with a cardboard template to help outline the area you need to cut out for the sink. If your sink did not come with a template you can make your own.
  1. Lay down the sink upside down on the countertop where you're going to install it.

  2. Measure form the back edge of the sink to the backsplash to make sure the sink is positioned evenly. Typically you want the sink back as far as possible near the backsplash.

  3. Trade around the outer top of the sink with a pencil.

  4. Measure the lip on the underside of the sink.

  5. Mark the dimension of the tip in from the line you traced around the sink.
