Repair cut in laminate countertop?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I goofed with a circular saw and made a big cut and gouge in my laminate countertop. Any idea how I can fix it. I have some slivers of laminate from other cuts, but not sure how to seamlessly fix. Any ideas? I have wood filler and gorilla glue and can pick up whatever I need tomorrow.

At least it wasn't an expensive top.

You can probably patch in a piece but there will be no way to hide it.
Be prepared to go back to HD or Lowes and get another one.

So not worth the fix? I really don't want to replace the whole top.

yeah, you can't seamlessly fix that. but you could "doll" it up = put a piece of stainless over the whole thing, sink wide. or route it out and put a piece of nice wood.

It also looks like your saw was tearing it up cutting the sink hole.

ughh, not good! sawdust and spit fixes a lot ( from a carpenters' perspective :) )

This. You won't be able to fix the damage in ways that won't look obvious. So either come up with a plan to replace a larger section or just get another counter. Right there in front of the sink, ugh, you really don't want patches or seams near where there's going to be a lot of water. Especially not when the substrate is crappy chipboard. You're just asking for trouble, much sooner than later.

Do you have enough room to put in an Apron Sink?
