If you want your countertop to turn a corner, you will need to join two lengths. Options for joining are limited by the material the countertop is made from, and whether its profile is square or rounded.

Square edges mean that two sections of countertop can be easily and neatly butt-joined without the need for a countertop jig. (Round edged countertops should be joined with a countertop jig, as used by professionals.)For square edges, cut the countertop lengths to size and, if necessary, scribe. Apply wood glue along one of the joining edges.
