Continued working on projects today... Our TT floorplan has the sink at the end of the kitchen counter, about 4" from the edge, and immediately adjacent to the fold-down sofa. On more than one occasion, something has splashed, sprayed.or spilled and spilled over onto the sofa.... very annoying!
A friend works manufacturing and installing custom counter tops, so I asked him to make a 3" x 32" "side-splash", to mount between the counter and the edge of the sink. He made it out of almost identical formica as the factory countertops - you really have to look to see that it's just a little bit lighter in color....
Today I mounted it, using my new biscuit joiner for it's first project. Four #20 biscuits along the length, and then one #10 at the back wall, along with three screws between the four biscuits, and a good dabbing of Gorilla Wood Glue, and it's already as solid as a rock! I had to cut the biscuit groove on the back wall by hand, as the joiner set too high when laid on it's side on the countertop, but that was easy with a Dremel cutter....
Now I just have to let it dry and cure, and then a bead of tan silicone sealant around it, and it will look like it was a factory job!!!!
