This is known as a cooktop cutout crack repair. The countertop has cracked in two places around the area that has the electric cooktop installed. This material is Cornerstone. They are no longer on the market and the material is no longer available. Fortunatley, the homeowner had a good fabricator that provided her with the proper heat trivettes and cutting boards made from her cooktop cutout so we were able to do a great looking repair.
There is still a little bow in the very front of the cooktop area that we had to leave in there because we were limited on the amount of material to work with. If material had been readily available we could have done an on site refabrication of the front section but for this we had to concentrate on just repairing the cracks.
Once again, some of my photos look like those old blurry Bigfoot pictures. Sorry.
Here is the countertop after the repairs have been completed.
