securing kitchen countertop
I've just asked lots about finishing our cherry countertop, but also have questions about securing it to the cabinets. Even though both countertops (basically simple rectangles) sit securely on the cabinets now waiting to be finished, not sure how they should eventually be secured. Cabinet maker said maybe he could just leave unsecured, so we could easily refinish next summer if we choose one finish method and decide to go a different route later. Though he's done lots of kitchen and other work, this is first time he's done a whole kitchen of cabinets and handmade wood countertop. Obviously, my husband and I have no experience to know whether, and how the countertop should be secured to the cabinets. What's standard and why? Thanks.
