    I was planning on removing the edging and using the cut edge to butt join to it, but Ive offered it up and it looks ok using the edges leaving the laminate on.

    Is there any reason I cant do this if I cut the dog bone shapes underneath and clamp it together ?
    Maybe using contact adhesive too and a bit of colorfill ?

    Hi, no I am butting 2 laminate edges together, I dont have a router.
     
  7. aah ok its a pre-edged worktop. obviously it will butt neater if you scribe and route the laminate off.
    if it looks ok when you butt them up go for it.

    You might be able to carefully peel the edging off with a knife, but don't damage the top edge and cut it at the corner of the joint first.
