I'm preparing to install a new laminate counter top in my kitchen; as this is the first I have installed by myself, I would like to know if there are any tip/tricks or things to look out for while doing it?
Specifically, what is the best saw and technique to use when trimming the counter top to length? The counter top has a back splash attached, and I'm not quite sure how to handle cutting it.
What are the best tools and techniques for cutting the hole for the sink, are there any tricky bits to watch out for while doing it?
I know this is a lot to ask for a single question, but I'm looking for the ultimate step by step guide to installing a laminate counter top. Also this counter will be in the shape of an "L", so it would be nice to cover attaching the two pieces and any gotchas associated with that.
