    Question Counter top install

    I recently re did my counters in my house. I have an island in the middle.

    In the old island I cut a hole in the middle for the trash (can underneath). To hide the un-finished edge, I bought plastic L beams that were made to cover up un-finished edges, they were glued down or you can use adhesive tape.

    Since replacing the counters, The old plastic pieces were accidently thrown away. I cant remember where I bought them and cant find them anywhere. Has anyone seen something similar to the L beams.

    Attached is a diagram of what I am talking about.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about, so the diagram would be handy -- but it didn't get uploaded properly. Wanna try that again?

    Mikey, have you checked with your local building supply sotr (sounds like you may have)? If they don't have them, thye may be able to special order them. It sounds like a common building material, so I'm suprised your having such a problem finding them. One other thing you could do is "finish" the edge with a small strip of linoleum(sp?)

    I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine
