http://fixmycabinet.com Formica does not fit right all the time when working with cabinets or countertops. Here’s how to work with uneven surfaces to make the plastic laminate fit tight to crooked walls.
This method is used to make pieces fit for cabinet and countertop mica. If you are resurfacing or just doing a cabinet or countertop installation that requires fitting mica laminate on the job, these tips will help.
Follow these steps:
Make sure to always cut your laminate oversize.
Push the piece of plastic tight to the surface where it does not fit right.
Using a pencil, push it tight to the wall or area where there are dips or humps.
Next, push or pull the marking device along the uneven surface so that it marks the Formica in the same shape as the dips or bumps.
Using your tin snips, cut the plastic laminate by following the mark that you just made with the pencil. Pay attention to the clean side of the cut with the tin snips. If you need to watch our other Youtube video on hand cutting laminate it will explain how to get the cleanest cut possible during this step.
Tip: If you are working with a dark colored plastic laminate, use a permanent marker when making the scribe mark o0nto the Formica.
Check the piece to see how it fits and make adjustments accordingly.
You should continue these steps until you get the Formica to fit the uneven surface really well. The idea here is to use as little caulking as possible once you are finished fitting the plastic laminate for your cabinet or countertop to the crooked wall areas.
I gave up on my french cleat system for my hand tools. I thought it would be very useful having the ability to move everything around according to my needs but after I had made holders and placed them on the cleats they never needed moving. The holders would tend to fall off (as shown in the beginning) because they’re not heavy enough.
This stopped me from making the rest of the holders for my tools and I’ve finally made the effort to make a whole new wall storage for them. I took a page out of Matthias Wandel’s book and made this which allowed me to be more flexible in where I place things and not have everything situated along the rails of a cleat. I also thought I’d try magnets for holding tools. They were cheap and seems to be very simple to take and put back the tools.
I still love french cleats, just not for this application.
