I spent some time looking on the boards before posting to see if there were already any threads about this, so I hope I didn't miss one.
My parents are putting a formica countertop in their utility room (I'm listing this under kitchen because it was the only board for countertops). They want the countertop to end at a wall at the side of the room. The problem is that the wall isn't straight, so in order to cut the countertop to edge along the wall, the counter edge will have to be cut along a crooked line.
I know that we can trace a pattern and just have the counter cut along that crooked line (my Dad has already traced a pattern), but my Mom and I are wondering if someone has another idea on how to take care of that mess. Put more stucco on the wall, and make it straight? Cover the gap with a piece of something? Stop the countertop 1/2" from the wall and have a gap? Any creative suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The crooked edge on the countertop will prevent it from having a crisp new look.
