Attaching granite tops to cabinets.

What do you use to attach granite countertops to the tops of the cabinets? What do I use to fill in any seams? What if I have 3/4" plywood on top of the cabinets, what is best to attach the granite to that?

Thanks,
Will

Most of the guy's around here will use door shims and silcone cualk to adjust and then to attach the tops to the cabinets.
The seams they use an epxoy resin the same color as the top and then buff it out after they get it set.
I would ask the people you got it from and see what they say about it,it may be that the type of granite you are using they might want you to use something different or a different method to install it.At any rate i would do what they say cause if you do it any other way it may void whatever warranty that was put on it

Good Sealant/Adhesive

Check out the specs. I use Set-In-Stone and Lexel. Very good stuff.
