how to make beveled edge countertop


I have made Laminate countertops before but I thought I would like to make a countertop with a small bevel on the corker. So the countertop would be made normal but instead of a 90 degree edge where you use laminate trimmer to finish the material, the edge would consist of a 45 degree with a 1/4 inch or so laminated followed by another 45 degree to compete the 90 corner.

is there a special bit that can be used on a router to produce this?

Thanks

Not an esay thing to do outside of a full production facility, but they make premade bevel edge for that very prupose. Not sure of minimum quanities, but you can get any color face with any color bevel. Check where laminate, countertop supplies are sold, but likely not big box.

Thanks for the info. I will take your advice and look outside my skills. My next thought was to use bullnose and a biscuit joiner.

I buy my beveled edge from a smaller hardware store. Not all style laminates are available. They come in 12 foot lengths and run about $50. I would google countertop beveled edge for more info.

Thanks Mikey If I understand you make your own counter tops and then buy the bullnose from the hardware store and then attach the bullnose to the countertop?

Have you done solid surface edging to laminate countertops? I have been reading up on that and it sounds like that is done with glue.

You didn't mention solid surface before. That is a different story. Yes, there are router tools for doing that, but for solid surface they must be carbide. 1/2" shanks have better stability than 1/4" but need a router that will allow them.

I have not done solid surface. I buy the laminate and beveled edge at the same time.

People love the look and the price compared to granite.
