My wife saw a posting on Pintrest of a tile countertop above a W&D and asked if I could do this but in something other then tile. I told her sure. Fellow LJ EROCK sells bamboo plywood in Seattle so I contacted him and got the ball rolling. I went with 1.5” thick end grain material. I cut & contoured the piece to fit in the corner as well as around the water & drain fixture. There is no such thing as a square corner in a home. I sanded the piece to 220 grit and sealed it with 3 coats of Helmsman Spar Urethane (sanding again to 220 between each coat) to seal it from the moisture in the laundry room. I mounted it in such a way that I can remove it to accomplish any MAJOR repair on the W&D. If no repair is needed before I sell & move, they are staying with the house. Thanks Erock, your product is great. Any questions or comments, feel free and maybe this will inspire you to make some dust.
