I have a 6-foot long "slab" of laminate kitchen countertop that I need to cut in half. Each half will be installed on top of a 36-inch long base cabinet.
At least, that is my tentative plan. I am concerned that when I cut the countertop in half, I'll lose an eighth of an inch or so to the saw blade, I'll therefore end up with two pieces of countertop that are just short of 36 inches long, and they won't quite fully cover the cabinets.
Is that something I should be concerned about? Is there a way to minimize the loss from the saw blade (would cutting really slowly help, for example) or to squeeze any length out of the cabinets so that the counter top will fit them cleanly? Or any kind of trim that people use in this situation to hide the imperfection if the countertop is a little too short for the cabinet?
