I saw someone on here make a larger counter for a dining area using plywood. I used the same method to create my countertop. The plywood I used was inch and an eight T&G flooring. I cut it into strips 2” x 26”. I then flipped them on their sides and glued two foot sections together. After the glue had dried, I used an electric hand plane to level the tops and bottoms of the pieces. I then filled any gaps with a trowlable wood filler. I then joined the two foot sections using wood pocket screws. After all the pieces were in place and the countertop was secured, I routed the outside edge with an ogee bit. I then filled gaps left from the router with more wood filler and gently sanded the profile. After that was done, I coated the entire countertop with five coats of Waterlox.
