Welding Grinding

How do you make a stainless steel counter top?

please provide instructions including the gauge of stainless, suggestions for corners and edges, adhesive, tools, etc. THX

The way we make them is with a 60 ton press brake that costs around $150,000 and a 1/4" rated mild steel shear (about $75,000 more).

If you dont have these machines laying around, you're pretty limited as to the gage thickness of the metal you can use and the fabrication methods.

If I were you, I would find a local sheet metal shop to make at least the stainless steel blank, whether formed or just sheared pieces.

Most SS Countertops are made from 16 ga (.063") stainless steel. Depending on your requirements, you may need three turned down edges, or only 1 or 2, or none. Typically countertop edges are folded back under the underlayment at the bottom side as well as the top side. You may or may not need this...you decide. If you will have exposed corners, welding, grinding and repolishing is req'd unless you dont mind an ugly exposed corner seam.

If you're looking to save money, I would run the countertop wall to wall if possible (eliminating exposed corners), or simply butt all the seams of sheared panels and use contact cement or an industrial adhesive to glue everything to the underlayment.... typically 3/4" plywood or mdf. This way you'll get a finished look without the need for expensive welding and polishing.

If you go the adhesive way, all you will need is to buy pre-sheared pieces from a metal fabricator and glue them yourself.
Expect to pay about $4.00-$7.00/pound for these sheared pieces (if not more) Then just glue them as above on the underlayment. Overlap the top side by 1/16" on your underlayment...that way when you glue the side and edge pieces, water wont be able to easilly find its way in the seams.

Without further info, that's about all I can give you

Good luck
