Installing Plastic Laminate
While it may not spring to mind as a first choice of materials to work with, woodworkers have used miles of plastic laminate on their projects. Whether to create a tough writing surface for a student’s desk, a counter top for a busy kitchen or as a way to build doors which can double as dry-erase boards, plastic laminates are versatile, relatively inexpensive and, unfortunately, have a reputation for being difficult to work with.
This page, brought to you by Woodworker’s Journal and Skil Tools, gives a good tutorial on the basics of installing plastic laminates. The process is laid out in easy step-by-step photo instructions and offers some pretty slick tips for working with the stuff.
