You can easily cut this material with laminate cutters, saber saws, routers or a carbide scoring knife. The old top can be removed using a heat gun and a putty knife. After the laminate is removed you can sand the excess glue down so that the top is evenly flat. The edges need to be removed the same way. To re-do the top start with the edges. Sides first (if any) and then the front. Re-glue these areas with contact cement letting both sides dry before touching and then remember that after they touch, that's it. They can't be moved again. File the edges and you are fionished except for using laquer thinner to clean any excess glue.....Mark Hammond
