Here's another question on laminate counter tops. We are going to take out our cook top and built in oven and put in a new stove. To do this we have to cut the laminate counter-top. The existing counter-top has that metal edgeing that most older homes had. Is there a way to save this and wrap it around the cut off to use it for the edgeing where we cut the counter/cabinet out to place our new stove in ?

I made some changes in my kitchen. The cooktop was in an island in the middle of the kitchen. It was always in the way. I had it popped up and rotated to make "an old-fashioned" peninsula with an extended over hang for an eating area at "the bar". This may have been a bit retro in styling but it works in the area much better than the more contemporary island. The new counter top was custom made in a different color to fit the dimensions of the peninsula and the small adjoining cabinet. The installation of the new countertop and new cooktop are great! The same laminate I selected is available in sheets. I would like my handy husband to work his magic and make all my counter tops match. My concern is that the countertops to be covered have a no drop rounded edge and the sheet laminate is flat. Can he achieve this rounded edge at home? I don't want to do to the flat edged box front. Are there any options?

As soon as we know how to handle the front edge, we intend to complete this project!

Thanks so much,
