I used Formica for my galley counter.
Formica is easy to work with. You can cut it with a circular saw or your table saw. The only really tricky part about working with Formica, is the adhesive used to apply it. It bonds instantly and PERMANENTLY on contact. Once it stuck, its there forever. So you need to make sure you have it aligned it precisely before allowing the laminate to touch the substrate.
This photo shows how I used small strips of wood to keep the laminate and substrate apart while I aligning the laminate. Then I pulled the strips out one at a time working from the center to the outside.
If you want a really precise fit, laminate it first. Then, cut it flush with router and a flush trim bit. This is the technique I used when laminating Formica to rough side of the ACX plywood galley walls on my Cubby.
