I started out thinking I'd maninate nre Formica over the old - which you can do. Once I got the top off I found the particle board has significant water damage around the faucet and sink rim. You couldn't tell from the top.
Making a new top is easy as is laminating new Formica, but you do need a router for the edges. As al alternative you could buy a prefab top at HD and cut it to size.
