SlobalWS several times to equip the kitchen "from scratch".Since prices for table tops not pleased, they looked for alternatives.All thought, came to the conclusion that it is best to do a cover for a table of these materials: plywood, liquid nails, tiles or porcelain tiles and grouts.The first time for the manufacture of countertops it used lumber 40x50 tiles and normal.The tree is attached to the floor with metal corners and dyupelyami - to the wall.Put plywood on top, screw it with screws (flush).Thus forumchanin I got a flat surface for laying tiles.

Price: chipboard - 1200 rubles., Plywood - 680 rubles., Bar - 200 rubles., Liquid nails, fasteners and corners - 1300 rub.Total spent on the countertop 3380 rubles (without the cost of porcelain).
ANDREUS12 frame kitchen countertops made of timber 40x40.Attached with screws to the walls and floor.In the framework laid sheets of water-resistant drywall.Tile, Tile chopped conventional, horizontal surfaces to put tile adhesive, and vertical - for liquid nails.The seams between the plasterboard clobbered alabaster, between tiles - grout.Surfaces plastering putty and skins for painting.It did not fast, but enough budget: most of the material - plasterboard, timber and grout left over from other works were bought only tiles and glue.
