I got up my courage today and cut my nice IKEA wood counter slab down to size, going from a stock 25.5″ to a tiny 18.5″ width. I’m going to use the extra wood to frame out the sink portion of the counter.
I added some primed pine edging and screwed the counter in from below. I’m happy with how it came out, the wood counter surface has a nice warmth to it. I head back to IKEA tomorrow for a smaller sink with no drain pan to fill in the gaping hole on the left.
