Re: counter top


There should be a reason for that, are the tops still level, has one cupboard moved for some reason, settling of the house. Anything that should be addressed so it doesn't repeat.

weeellll, what we believe happened is..... we have a (kind of large) puppy door under the overhang of the counter slab, had a few people over for adult beverages, and someone invented "THE PUPPY DOOR CHALLENGE" (in a nutshell, this is where the hoo-mans attempt to not get stuck while doing what the dogs do) in short, one rather large guest was coming through, and pulled herself up using the overhang of the counter top. soooo, In my opinon, our childish antics is what caused the seam to crack. But, I must say, we DO have fun at our parties.....

It's all over when the fat lady sings, or hoists herself up by the countertop.🤣

Sounds like a wild time. So is the brackets under it that may to be wedged back up to level, I think they use coloured epoxy.
If you have access to both sides you could use a bar clamp to pull it together or make one with a 2x4 with a block on each end and use wedges to push it in.
