counter top installation


We're trying to install a mitered countertop over a lazy susan. How do you get to the miter to install the screws that pull it together.

Jheeeezh! Couldn't you have chosen an easier project?

There are two ways (maybe).

In some cases the countertop can be positioned away from its final resting place on saw horses and assembled in this fashion then carefully slid into position.

Another way is to remove the lazy-susan assembly and crawl in there after positioning the components.

In either case if the top doesn't fit properly to the walls it may have to be scribed and removed for modification.

This particular installation is one of the worst to tackle, so hang in there and be patient.

The last one I did the lazy susan cabinet had a top on it. It wasn't easy. Think I used 1x boards stacked under the top so I could make the miter fit up. Then lowered the top down by pulling the boards out one at a time to lower the top.

Yup! Wasn't thinking about that! Some have a full cover and others have only a 1X bridge to attach the susan top hardware to.

Bstroutman,

I had this same issue last year when trying to screw together. What I did was drilled a 1/4 hole through the top of the lazy susan and fit a philips through the hole and made my adjustments from there ( I tried pulling the countertop off of the lazy susan and tried it that way but it was too awkward and never turned out quite right). It actually worked out quite well and you would never notice the holes.

Some people just cut a hole or two in the top of the lazy suzan so they can tighten from underneath
