I am uncertain how to create a countertop with a custom edge detail. I would think that a sweep must be used, but am not sure how to combine that with a 1-1/2" thick countertop extrusion. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks

Maybe you can try create the counter separately, Extrusion for the the countertop and sweep around the edge of the counter using sweep technique with the custom edge profile. I think as long as you specify the same material and join geometry at the later stage for both solid, It will turn out as one piece. Hope I got your question right!

when i do a counter top it is as a sweep. i make the whole profile, backsplash, counter top and chamfer or radius edge and sweep it only the path that covers the cabinets. i find it easier thatn trying to make a special counter top family that fits a instances. you make family profiles tht you can insert into each project so you do not have to create a new one when you do counter tops. the only time i use something other than a sweep for a counter top is on an island. in whichcaseit is a either a blend with an extrusion for chamfered edges or extrusion with an sweep for the radius edge.

Create new family. Create new countertop on plan using extrusion. Then create profile, sweeping along edge of countertop. So long one edge of counter has a relevant plane (front/back or ends) draw your sweep pattern to this plane. Provided material is same for both, line will not be visible on render, but will appear on 3d line views etc.
