My husband and I are renovating our kitchen. We're to the point that we're about to start installing the lower cabinets. After that, it will be the counters. We have heard that it is difficult to install counter tops as do-it-yourselfers because you need a special blade or type of saw. The estimate we got for counters alone was $600 (not including installation) and we've seen them in home stores for low prices so we're wondering what's really involved in cutting them. You can buy them already mitre cut which would make it a lot easier. Has anyone done this or do you know what's involved to do it right?
