How do you fix a crack in a countertop?
Clean out and de-grease the crack using denatured alcohol. Set out two separate beads of epoxy filler and hardener on a disposable surface, as much as you think you’ll need to fill the crack plus a little more. Mix paint and/or original material shavings into the bead of filler to match the tine of the countertop.
