Stainless Steel Countertop


We have a kitchen island with a top that's about 2x4 feet. The rest of our countertop is dark granite, but for the island, my wife wants stainless steel. The only local place that does them wants more than $3,000, which is beyond ridiculous. I don't need commercial quality or something that is NSF compliant, though I obviously don't want any seams. Any ideas? I thought of gluing down a sheet of 16 gauge stainess (or maybe even thinner) on plywood or MDF, but am not sure how to deal with the edges.

There are probably several used restaurant equipment places in your area that have just the right sized table top.

I used to be in that business. In 1994 I'd have charged a regular/repeat customer about $240 for that top (in 14ga type 304). Maybe $300 to a one off homeowner.

Today it still *shouldn't* be more than $500.

Find another shop.
Go to P'burg or DC or Baltimore if you have to.
