Detailed Definitions of Mitres

Butt Joint Mitre:

A joint used to extend the length of a countertop. Two 90 degree cuts joined together to form a continuous piece of countertop. Keep in mind that there will be a visible seam at this joint. We do our best to make this joint invisible by putting it as far away as possible from a high use area.

Bulkhead Mitre:

This mitre is used to join one standard depth countertop together with a non-standard sized countertop. You will have a post-formed backsplash on the standard sized top and you must have a square backsplash or a clean cut back on the other side.
NOTE: The charge of the square backsplash and the non-standard sized top are not included in the price for the bulkhead mitre.

Dog Leg Mitre:

A zigzag cut (see drawing above) which allows the joining of two postformed backsplash countertops with different depth sizes, without the need for a square backsplash anywhere. NOTE: Standard angle 90 degrees unless quoted.

Double Mitre with Shelf:

Two 22.5 degree standard mitres forming a 90 degree countertop along the back walls. The triangle at the rear is filled in with a shelf. The charge for the mitre includes the shelf. The front dimension of the middle piece of countertop is critical. Make sure that the dimension for the corner cabinet is supplied and that the front middle piece is indeed at a 45 degree angle to the walls. Please see drawing above.

Mitre with Butt Joint:

This mitre is a partial "butt joint" where the overall length of the countertop needs to be between 144" and 166.5". The butt joint may now be incorporated into a standard mitre joint. The charge for the butt joint is in addition to the charge of the regular / standard mitre charge.

Inset Double Mitre with Shelf:

A 90 degree angled, postformed countertop with two 45 degree mitres. THe middle section is recessed deeper into the top allowing better access to the shelf. This requires laminate edging (included in the price) and exact dimensions. NOTE: "No-drip" profiles can not be used with this design.

Inset Lazy Susan Mitre:

A 90 degree angled postformed countertop with a recessed postformed section of top at the middle, allowing for better access to the rear corner of the countertop. The inserted piece of countertop can not have the "No-drip" profile, as there would be an unsightly bump meeting up to the flat surface of the countertop. Exact dimensions are required. Please see drawing above.

Reverse Mitre:

The reverse of a standard mitre where the front roll and backsplash are reversed. It is recommended that the outside corner be rounded or angled. Please see drawing above.

Out of Square Mitre:

Any angled countertop in which the angle is other than 45 or 90 degrees. A template is suggested or the exact degree of the angle supplied. The 3, 4, 5 rule may assist with this. An additional charge is applied for an out of square mitre.

Standard Mitre (90 degree):

A 90 degree angled countertop manufactured with two 45 degree angle cuts. This is condsidered to be a standard mitre.

Standard Mitre (45 degree):

A 45 degree angled countertop manufactured with two 22.5 degree angle cuts. This is considered to be a standard mitre.
