    Say Goodbye to That Formica CounterTop!

    Please change Step 16 to "secure with plumbers putty". I wanted to swap out a porcelain Kohler sink for a stainless model because dropping a glass or plate in the Kohler ALWAYS ended badly. The Kohler sink had been glued down - epoxy, silicone, or contact cement - all I know is that it was nearly impossible to remove the sink without damaging the counter - took me hours and several razor blades.

Beautiful counter, beautiful job, excellent article. Thank you.

    All in One Work Bench

    I just finished a potting bench for my wife - nowhere the workmanship that obviously went into this beautiful project. I used nothing but scrap - mostly 2 x 4s - collected over the years, so it looks rough but is square in all the right places - thanks to me DeWalt chopsaw.
