How they fastened build my 1970's counter top
I recently asked in a thread "How did they fasten old countertops" . Thanks again for all of the tips/suggestions and links as I was able to save the base cabinets while removing the tops.
My cabinets that had formica backsplash were surprisingly fastened to the cabinets with a few screws. I initially didn't see the screws. The tops edges were nailed to the top from the side and the backsplash was nailed to the top from the bottom. Fortunately no glue was used except a few drops where the top and edge met.
