I took these photos this morning. I hope this provides the detail you wanted.
The bench top is 1mm Brushed stainless wrapped on 1/2" ply. The top was plasma cut for the stove
top, sink and taps. The sink was welded and blended. The edges are 30mm with a 6mm returns. They were double folded with a pencil round bend then mirror polished.
I supplied the ply counter tops and the sink and the fabricator did the rest.
As the corners of the benches are exposed They were an extra expense. They needed to be fabricated, welded, blended and polished.
The splash back was plasma cut to conform with the cabin
sides from a sheet of M8 mirror stainless. M8 is absolute mirror. It was the most expensive part of the whole process. I provided a 3mm mdf template for the cut. After jack hammering the tiles off the bulkhead of the old galley
.. ( Jackhammer was the only way to remove them) I sealed a sheet of 3mm white poly coated ply with epoxy
glued it to the bulkhead. It is needed as the bulkhead has to be absolutely smooth otherwise imperfections will telegraph trough the stainless. The splash back was glued to the new bulkhead surface with construction adhesive
. The bench top was then fitted up to the splash back and sealed with a silicone specifically designed for stainless. In 10 years it has never leaked and with proper care the splash back has not scratched or tarnished.
In all the stainless bench tops for the galley
, the electrical
cupboard and the splash back cost around $800.
I did the kitchen bench top in our house renovation
the same and it was a lot cheaper because it fitted between 2 bulkheads and didn't require the corner details.
I hope this helps.
