Level the countertop to be sure it will fit tight to the wall and cabinets; shim if needed; remove from cabinets.
Locate the braces on the bottom of the counter. There will be extra strips of wood along the back and on the front corners of the countertop.
Drill a pilot hole in each of the braces, using a drill bit that is one size smaller than the wood screws that came with the countertop.
Squeeze a bead of construction adhesive along the back and sides of the cabinet edges where the countertop will rest.
Lift the countertop into place, taking care to keep the bead of adhesive intact until the weight of the countertop presses it down.
Screw the countertop through the pilot holes into the back wall and to the front of the cabinet, using the wood screws provided. Have a helper check the countertop as you secure it to be sure it doesn’t shift from its designated location while you work.
