Lay the Countertop

On installation day, Lincoln loads the countertop into his truck for the two-hour drive to the house. Like a stone slab, it must be transported on its side to avoid cracking, especially around the sink cutout. And since it weighs about 16 pounds per square foot (about the same as granite), the base cabinets have to be made of at least 3/4-inch plywood to support it.
