Saturday, January 1st, 2011: Happy New Year!
Cut out holes for the bar sink and propane stove in each of the 3/4″ plywood kitchen counters in preparation for installing the stainless steel counter tops.
Eddie Cler came by to assist with installing the first counter top. After cleaning the surface of the plywood of any dust or debris, he applied a generous amount of clear 100% silicone caulk. He used a tile trowel to create an even coating of silicone with a groved surface all over the plywood. From there, we simply laid the stainless steel counter top in place and weighted it down with whatever we could find laying around to keep pressure on the steel as the silicone cures. Pretty simple, and he says that the counter will be kept securely in place for the life of the kitchen!
Thanks to Eddie Cler for designing, manufacturing, and helping to install our stainless steel countertops!
