Inlaying Tile on Laminated Countertops


Posted by Ken Taylor on February 8th, 2001 04:04 PM


We have a spot in our laminated counter top where a cutting
board melted and tore out a chunk of laminate. I would
like to rout out a rectangle and inlay tile in the countertop
as an area to place hot pans etc. I plan on routing out the area
using a template, pilot bushing, and a fluted router bit.
Then use thinset or mastic to provide a bed for the tile and
to water proof the exposed particle board. I also plan to
reinforce underneath the countertop with plywood in case the
thinner particleboard can't hold the weight.

Has anyone done anything like this, and are there pitfalls I should
be aware of.

Thanks
Ken
