Butt Joint Installation
The real reason I removed the old formica top and cabinet is because it interfered with playing pool. So I chose the most unlikely material to butt joint.
I plan on coating the brick with a clear, shiny sealer, very cleanable. then grout then seal again. Pictures of the sealing and grouting will follow
The edges of the top are straight and the imperfections in brick size and shape show in the middle.
On this side I had to cut the bricks down to about 3/4 for wood transition.
It may be the most irregular brick but with a little time you can have a flat and rustic looking top.
