Hi Shannon,
I notice that you don't use a 'balancer' sheet of laminate on the underside of your countertop. Can you confirm that your construction experiences minimal movement without this? I'm keen to do it your way but unsure why others might think this necessary.

I love your video, by the way. It's very informative and easy to follow.

I suppose if you live in a high humidity area it may be necessary. In my experience pretty much only commercial tops have it because it is spec'd that way in my area. I have never done a residential top with it.
