We have decided to remove our single burner electric/ alcohol cook top and cover the whole counter with a new layer of laminate. The wife would rather have more available countertop instead of the burner. We have used both the electric and alcohol in the first few years of boating. But now we use an electric skillet or grill.
Has anyone done this project? Any thoughts or advise would be appropriated. I won't be staring until April. Plan on doing the table top as well.
It's possible. I'd sand heavily and thoroughly with heavy grit paper and an orbital sander. I'd be apt to take that route if the counter was solid and even. I included the extra sheet of lauan to ensure there is a smooth transition over the filled stove hole. I'd hate to see a weird crease develop if the surfaces aren't perfect.
I removed the old stove, but cant seem to find a single burner induction that will fill the hole. So I cut a cutting board to fit the hole and cover the imprint left by the stove. Ill post pics this weekend.
