Re: kitchen & anemone

Oh, the counter........
Well, I selected a simple, inexpensive formica.  Craig bought the formica
cut to size from some company.  But when he glued it to the counter, it had
been cut about a foot too short.  So he has them cut it again.  Wrong again.
3rd time - right length, but he had glued the short one on already, so he
cut a piece from the 2nd try to even it up, then laid the 3rd try over the
top and glued formica to formica.  You can hear it crackle and pop as  it
ripples under your hand when you smoothe your hand over it.  He trimmed the
vertical front piece after applied, and that runs sort of downhill toward
the corner.  But the main problem is that it is an old 1940s style.  I fully
expected an all one piece counter with curved backsplash and curved front
rather than a 2x4 for a backsplash with clear caulk where they meet.
Everything is sharp corners and the end hangs out too far from the end
cabinet.  (you shoulda seen the huge bruise on my hip when I ran up the
steps from the family rm and cut the corner too sharply)

I told him that was all wrong, but he said he didn't have the facilities to
make that kind of counter.  The counter was the last thing in and by this
time I just wanted this guy out. He made it plain that he couldn't /wouldn't
do the counter the more modern way, so I just accepted it thinking I could
get it fixed someday.  then I found out how much, so I just gave up.  It's
"OK", just not right.
