Note: If you were to go buy that "Generic" countertop to replace it, it would cost the same as what I paid for all my materials. To have a custom shop do this type of counter-top would cost 3-4 times out-of pocket cost. Thankfully Im equipped with the tools to do this, but it really dont take too much..
I went from "cheap and plain", "Poorly installed" To "custom and unique" and "solidly built" so this is a definite "fix it" contest entry!
Step 1: Out with the old!
Step 2: Next unscrew the old counter
After you get all of the screws out, gently lift the old counter up if it snags or hangs, there is more to unscrew, so do not force it..
It should lift right off the Cabinet top. toss outside or re-purpose (in my case) into a shop counter.
