Over the summer heat and humidity did a number on the original Oak countertop. I decided to try my hand at copper. After much research, I decided on thicker roofing material – 16 oz. sheet material which was 3 feet wide by 10 feet long. The biggest challenge was cutting the material. I decided on a jigsaw with a fine toothed metal blade. Attachment was similar to other laminates using contact cement and a roller.
Once attached, I used a flush trim router bit and files to clean up edges.
I really like these induction cooktops. They replace the need for propane gas and the necessary plumbing. If you haven’t used induction – give it a try. They boil water very fast and simmer so efficiently.
