cutting formica counter top question

well I can cut it with the sabre saw and formica blade fine. What has happened is there was a change of design and counter end has to be cut. We do not want to wait 6 weeks or longer for the banding. So has anyone tried attaching say a finished wood strip to the cut edge? This would be next to the range. And another cut would be in an area that is leaned against. Looking for ideas here. I was thinking of a long piece of wood, predrilled for rock screws, and either wood putty or maybe a plug cutter. But how to have a really tight seal to keep moisture from getting between wood and formica is one of the concerns. So has anyone tried other things? Lastly this is a rental but its a nice rental with bells and whistles.

Look at the BORG for the end pieces. The kits usually include a filler and formica to match the rest of the counter-top.

Omigosh, no screws please. Do you have any woodworking friends? Can you beg, borrow, or cajole them to get them to make you something? You make a strip of wood with a nice edge, either rounded, beveled, whatever you like. You cut some slots for biscuits and then glue it in place. Use a waterproof glue like Titebond II or III.
The wood can be stained, painted, or whatever is fitting for your needs. You can make it from a nice hardwood like cherry, maple, walnut, etc. Ed
