I have some light blue tresspa you can have to replace your worktop if you want it. 1 piece about 400mm wide by approx 1.8mtrs long. Free is always a good price :D

I cut a worktop in 12mm stone the other day. A nice black with chrome bits in it. We've got loads of off cuts at work, probabally throw away 10tons/month. I'm suprised it's not used more often.

buy a sheet of 3mm ply and have it cut into strips of about 50mm wide by 500mm long. Strip back you worktop, then glue ply on top in staggered strips. Stain to your choice of color. 2 coats of 50% varnish & thinners. Light rub down then 1 last coat. Cover with piece of 6mm toughened glass T:

My worktops and Table will be real Carbon Fibre when I get around to laying them up. They will have a nice rolled edge and should suit the black and grey theme nicely. A:A:
