  • Where to buy Formica?

    Years ago I could buy 2'x4' sheets of Formica (other brand?) laminate at several stores like Home Depot or Home Hardware. It seems like no one has them anymore. Anyone by chance seen any in the Edmonton area? I really don't want to buy a full 8' sheet. I just want to re-face my Biesemeyer saw fence.

    I’ve seen pieces at the Restore places.
    Might be worth a call.

      Are you or any of your friends coming down to Calgary in the near future?? If so let me know and I will give you enough for your fence. Many colours to choose from. LOL.

          Well, we were going to go there at the end of the month to visit my wife's mother, but then the world got stupid.

          Thanks for the offer Wally. I'll keep this in mind if my searching here continues to be fruitless.

            Here in NZ we have company's that only make bench tops it has become a specializes job having to have the bending machines that heat the laminate, we have one near us and I go there for left overs, when I renovated this house I used Formica laminate on all the window liners that come with aluminum windows, before questions are asked I had the jamb liners supplied loose I took off the paint and epoxy glued on the laminate then attached to the window.

              You could try a place like Flow Form Countertops on Yellowhead and about 80th street. Maybe they have pieces that would work that they're just throwing away.

                  I know most of my suppliers are all closed down now so probably nowhere for a few weeks

                    I found some in my shed if you still need a piece.

                      Honestly, I haven't been out to look since things got crazy. Figured I'll just live with it for the time being.

                        Hey, thanks. Once the weather smartens up I'll maybe take the bike down that way for a piece. I ride through there once in a while when I'm out for a jaunt.

                            Most of the cabinet suppliers sell one of various brands. I deal with Commonwealth Lumber in London. They are a Formica dealer. I buy Sheet goods from them and they always have a variety of rolls of Formica for sale in the warehouse and usually in the $10 a sheet range. They may be weird colours or have corners broken or just old stock. I suspect any similar business would have similar deals. Just don’t go looking for your favourite color

                              grab a scrap of countertop, cut down to a 1/2 inch bigger in length and width, then grab an iron on medium and heat the laminate. it will, peel off
