    Default Temporary benchtop

    Got a quote for Caesar Stone benchtops = 5800. Can't afford just yet so I knocked up a temp one out of 32mm thick HMR particle board. It'll have twin Smeg underbench mount sinks. I'm going to put a couple of coats of MArine Spar Varnish around the inside edges of the cutout to prevent swelling when wet hopefully.
    I've edged it in Masara 32mm x 19mm ripped down from a piece of decking that was too distorted to use on the deck. It's had 2 coats of sanding sealer and i'll finish it with a couple of gloss coats of something or other.
    Like I say just temp.

    Ps. I have also resorted to MDF temporary tops but not as flash as yours. Should not be too long for my permanent tops to be ordered.

    There's also a s/s laundry sink (not yet connected), a TV, a Yamaha stereo amp, 2 excellent Jamo speakers, and a 30 year old Philips transistor radio. Gotta snavel the old kettle and toaster when the nnew kitchen is finally finished.
