Title: Method for making a beveled laminate corner on a laminate countertop edge piece

Abstract: A method for making a beveled laminate corner on an edge piece for laminate countertop includes making a first cut into a laminate-covered edge piece at the angle of the bevel at the front edge of the edge piece. The first cut terminates below the laminate at the top of the edge piece. A second cut is made through the laminate and into the edge piece at an angle that is normal to the first cut. The second cut intersects the first cut at its upper extremity and has a predetermined depth. A rectangularly cross-sectioned laminate-covered bevel piece, having a thickness equal to said predetermined depth, is then adhesively attached to the edge piece abutting the surfaces formed by the first and second cuts.
