How To Make a Countertop Template5:00 PM
It feels like its been a while since I updated you on the dry bar, I think it was about five weeks ago since I put the cabinets together. Anyway, on Memorial day I got the smaller tasks done that whould allow us to install the countertops real soon, like hopefully next weekend. Those smaller tasks being 1. Installing some base boards and 2. Securing the cabinets to the wall. They were relatively easy to do, but I think I put it off for so long because I didn't have the lumber on hand. Oh, and maybe I was a little preoccupied with painting my studio. Since we don't have any more of the baseboards from the rest of our house I just chose some simple window casing to use as a base board. I thought it would tie in with the door frame nicely too. Luckily I only needed to buy one 8' long piece for the entire closet. Even luckier for me, I didn't mess up any of my cuts so I didn't have to go buy more! I also added a 2x4 to the back so we would have something sturdy to secure the cabinets to so they don't move around, also to give us another inch or so of depth.
So have you even installed a butcher block countertop? How about templating your own counter?
