That said, why are you building from scratch? You can get prefabricated counter tops at any big box store, with the nice rounded nosing and built-in back splash, which means less seams to allow water to get in. Unless the prefabricated counter tops won't fit your requirements, you're doing a whole lot extra labor for a lesser quality end product.
