    Hi all,

    Can you pls tell me where I can buy kitchen worktops that already have the router cuts made, i.e. the male cut at one end and the female cut on the necessary long side so that you can make a straight cut where appropriate and join the 2 pieces together at 90 degrees?

    I have forgotten where I have seen these before now and remember someone mentioning that homebase were selling them - is this correct?

    Hope this makes sense and thanks for any help in advance, Richard

    Never seen them for sale, if you do find them before you buy make sure that your walls are at 90 degrees. In my experience they very rarely are so off the shelf mitre cut tops don't really work..

    You're right homebase did sell them, not sure if they still do. And artic is also correct that they were a bit more expensive but when I worked it out it was still cheaper than buying the basic stuff and getting a joiner.
