Has anyone made wood counter tops before? I would like to make wood counter tops for my kitchen.
I was thinking of gluing strips of 3/8" hardwood to a 3/4" plywood then installing it.
What would you all recommend? I thought about using 3/4" hardwood, not glued to a substrate, but thought that the expansion and movement that I would end up with would cause problems.
I also thought about sawing hardwood into strips, 1" or so, turning them on side (so basically it would be quarter sawn) then using that.
Your thoughts, experience, suggestions are all welcome!
