This is especially an inexpensive and attractive solution for renters. A post from This Old House blog, The Hardware Aisle, tells you how to do it right...According to author Mark Powers, the trick is using furniture-grade veneer plywood that is trimmed with solid hardwood and carefully sealed with a urethane or varnish. He even tells you how to cover your existing countertop with 1/4-inch plywood. Check it out at The Hardware Aisle. Via: materialicio.us and This Old House.
