I've been checking out counter tops sections for sale and I've noticed the mitered cut is never precisely level. Many are extremely bowed. How significant is this? I've head on assembly you can adjust the surface with hammer and wood block as you glue and screw the mitered sections together, will this be sufficient?
If it's that badly bowed then pick another one. Any I've installed are pretty close to being flat, and yes a tapping block will get it close enough.
Make sure to glue the seam where they come together though before it's installed.
Start at the back and work your way to the frount, that way you can just lift or lower the front edge to get the middle with without have to a tap it.
