Will depend on what is involved.
Freestanding cooker or built in hob?
Sinks.....one or two?
Straight piece or around a corner?

About 5yrs i paid £400 for a good quality top fitting. It was L-shaped approx 3m length and a 2m length. Cut outs for hob and two sinks and taps

Just to be sure. That is £400 for the tops AND the fitting. Isn't it?

Hi,
i have three 3 metre lengths, two of which need cutting down to 2 metres. So worktop will run down three sides of the room.
I then need cutouts in the 3 metre length for sink and two small ones for pipework. In one of the two metre lengths i need a cutout for a hob.

The best way to joint the work surfaces is to use a router and purpose made jig. Not something i would recommend someone attempted for themselves.
Typical that this is the only equipment we don't have at the minute

Maybe Coggy could be of assistance?

My boyfrined and i are fitting most of the kitchen just don't feel confident to cut worktops ourselves due to the fact that they are expensive and i have nightmares of making a very expensive mistake!!
We were planning on joining the worktops with adhesive.

We talking real wood worktops yeah? If so then you don't need to mitre them. Feel free to give us a call on number below for a quote,
