2. Trimming the Countertop --  A wooden molding frames a laminated countertop nicely, but it can be difficult to do. We show you a few techniques that make it easier. 4. Using and Sharpening Scrapers -- This simple pieces of tools steel are perhaps the most ingenious woodworking tools ever invented -- excepting the Mark V, of course.
