CFT 163 – Plastic Lamination Fabrication

Plastic laminates are widely used in the woodworking industry in both commercial and residential applications. Students in this course will learn about the adhesives, tools and techniques used to apply plastic laminate (“Formica”) to a suitable substrate.

We will concentrate on the production of custom countertops, installation, specialized tools, and tricks-of-the-trade. In addition, we will discuss how these same techniques can be applied to new cabinets and refacing of kitchen and bath cabinets.
