Need Advice on Mounting a Piece of Granite in Countertop

We are going to be installing new counter tops (laminate w/ wood edge) in our kitchen. I have a piece of granite that I would like to install in the countertop near the stove. Does anybody have advice on mounting the granite into the countertop. I would prefer to install it flush or near flush with the countertop.

I have two instances of granite mounted in wooden countertops in my house. One has beveled-edge granite resting in a rectangular hole in the wood, and one has square-cut granite resting on a ledge that is cut into the wood with a router. What kind of tools do you have?

At my house, the sealant is gravity. It's a free product available everywhere.

Wonderful stuff. However water also travels by gravity and I'd like to keep it away from the particle board that is under the laminate.

installing the granite is the easy part.
cut a beveled (15 degrees) cutout in the laminate top grind down the edges of the granite (same bevel) to fit in the cutout (all 4 sides get beveled). make sure the top is the widest part of the beveled edges.
cutouts in laminate tops for cutting boards are a disaster waiting to happen.
you should be asking "how do I seal the edge of the laminate cutout"
M.C. somewhere in Ca.
