Plywood Kitchen Countertops

One of the least-expensive kitchen countertop options is wood. You don’t have to go the way of pricey foreign wood grains that claim to be eco-friendly. You can outfit your kitchen in furniture grade, veneer plywood that’s mounted onto your existing counter.

Mark Powers of The Hardware Aisle states:
After trimming out the edges with strips of the actual wood and sealing the new surface with a quality clear coat. It’s the perfect solution for the renovator on a budget, the renter, or the quick-fixer-upper who needs to hide the hideous counter before putting the house on the market.
Here’s a great how-to for setting up these new countertops. Send us photos if this is something you’ve done.
