Video: Fitting a Tight Alcove Countertop

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in fitted alcove cabinets, chunky floating shelves, wardrobes and display shelving units out of Sheffield, UK, was originally made to show installers how to fit a countertop into an alcove, but the company was kind enough to share it publicly.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