Video: Solid Surface Cove Routing and Sanding

Posted on 25 November 2019 by cradmin

This video put out by fabricator Olive Mill, in California, shows the basics of how to route and sand a solid surface, cove countertop.

The video begins with a fully fabricated countertop with the cove insert and backsplash glued up for the purposes of time. The demonstrator uses a specialty Betterly Cove Router, and shows the cove routing itself, followed by the basic sanding process to complete a smooth, contoured cove radius.

Cove backsplashes are a great upsell in solid surface and can increase the value-add and the profits per job, making both the fabricator and customer happier.
