Ill make one myself, it wont have the fancy edge, I'm thinking of getting some exotic wood, and routing an edge detail on it and using that for the edge.

An Roman Ogee bit with the step set at the bottom of the laminate makes a nice edge detail.

I think I found the answer to my countertop edging dilemma.

There is formica edging that can be installed. has anyone used this fromica edging? If so how was it is it as easy as they show in this video?

To answer your question yes, it's not difficult at all. I did literally thousands of feet of this edging before WilsonArt purchased them, and after they purchased them. Before we could get any brand laminate, after, only WA. I would suggest using the tongue one as it's easy to line it up once and your good, also more glue surface. I actually worked with the old owner on the sander. Nice machine which I used for years and years, wish I still had it . It does make a nice edge. The bevel is what they started out with and we later went to making our own bevel edge style laminate edges. Does make a nice top. You can also get the laminate up to 60" wide by 144" long so, depending on what you choose you may be able to make the deck with no seams. Good luck !

It is WilsonArt not Formica laminate so.....

Thanks Tom.

FYI I was considering using the edging that has the tongue, I figured it would help with holding the alignment, along with more glue surface.

Finally got a chance to mount all the drawer fronts and doors to check for fit.

I got a couple of small things to do, but now I can go ahead and spray the drawer fronts and doors with sealer and get them ready to shoot the color.

Top view shows how the sink section is 45 degree instead of a 90 degree L shape. (There's a reason for this, I'll show later).
