Hi! I have a countertop that extends beyond the wall by about 6 inches and is not cut perfectly straight. The first 20" is tucked into an alcove (and so can be concealed with silicone) but I have to put edging on the last 6 inches and to do this I need it flat... I'm sure the contractor thought he'd fix it when he comes back. Which he's probably never going to do.

My question (sorry - rant rant rant) - what is the best tool for making this flat (particle board with a laminate top - thanks ron!) without pulling it out as it's tucked in pretty good. There's a variance of about 3/8ths of an inch.

Thanks!!

To cut it straight, you would use a circular saw with a 40 tooth carbide or a plywood blade. And a straight edge clamped to the counter.
But to avoid chipping the laminate, you need to remove the counter, flip it over and cut it from the back.
