Hack an affordable Stainless Steel Kitchen Island Countertop


Materials: Sanfrid Stainless Table Top 59″x29″

We wanted a stainless steel top for our kitchen island. We also purchased a new gas range that would be the centerpiece of this island. Custom fabricating this top with a local metal shop would have cost $1,000. We were able to accomplish this with a fairly simple modification of the Sanfrid Table Top for fraction of the cost.

Tools needed included a jigsaw with a metal 2″ blade. The top was attached to the base cabinet with construction adhesive….that’s it…all fairly simple!!

We absolutely love the look and the ease of cleaning.

    I believe the countertop is stainless steel overlaying particle board or Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)

    I have been thinking about temporarily replacing the top on the island in my apartment with the same top and replacing it with the original when I move. I think you may have made up my mind and I’ll be following through :-)

    What material is inside the Sanfrid top? I was planning on using screws to secure it in my planned application.
