Video: Fitting a Tight Alcove Countertop

Posted on 25 October 2018 by cradmin

This 20 minute video, made by Freebird Interiors, a specialist in fitted alcove cabinets, chunky floating shelves, wardrobes and display shelving units out of Sheffield, UK, was originally made to show installers how to fit a countertop into an alcove, but the company was kind enough to share it publicly.

It shows the company’s full process of marking/scribing, cutting to shape, checking and fitting an alcove cupboard countertop on an actual installation for one of it’s customers. While the material used is laminate, this process could likely be used for other materials, such as solid surface, that can be easily cut on the job site.

Granite Countertops Gone Bad – Very Bad

Posted on 27 August 2013 by cradmin

We have all seen the cheap granite countertop signs along the roadside and have heard about poor workmanship, but this video shows granite at its worst. After seeing this video, it is very hard to believe that a customer would find this acceptable, and even more difficult to believe that a fabricator would do this kind of work. Hopefully, consumers understand this is not typical of the crafstmanship of most granite fabricators!

Everyone who is making a new countertop purchase should be made to watch this before they decided on going with the cheapest crap out there, because this will make them think twice. What a travesty. When you watch this video, supplied by Fireplace Carolina, which shows a previous install the company ran across, you absolutely won’t believe it.

I’d like to think this was staged, but unfortunately it seems all too real. I had to watch it twice to digest it; and then I thought of it in terms of when you pass a wreck on the side of the road and you can’t help but look.

Beyond that, all I can say is, you have to see it to believe it:
