    Countertop Update

    We decided on Silestone as the countertop material for the countertop on the perimeter cabinets and wood for the island countertop. Silestone has yet to be installed, but thusfar my experience with the subcontractors that the local Home Depot has chosen to work with is less than good...

    As for the island, my wife would like wood but not butcher block. Almost a table top look. This is good in that I can build it, but not so good in that it will involve some long pieces and I need to do some thinking about it's design to minimize chances of boards cupping.
