a ½ bevel edge on a counter has an edge that is cut at an angle ½ of the way down the edge. ½ Bevel Edge is similar to the ½ bullnose edge in that the alteration to the edge ends one-half of the way down the side edge. The difference is that a ½ bevel edge has a 45-degree angle cut into the edge of the countertop instead of a convex arch.
½ bevel edges are not difficult to accomplish, however, they are not as commonly used as ½ bullnose edges or bullnose edges. Due to the straight, clean angle, ½ bevel edges often work well in modern designs which can sometimes be described as almost sterile in appearance. The drawback of a bevel edge is the sharp edges that can be a safety issue for younger children, though they are still not as much of a hazard as a straight edge. Using a router, the ½ bevel can also be easily incorporated into woodwork, moldings, and furniture in order to create a cohesive design in a space.
