Can I raise the height of my countertops without dismantling them??


I have 34.5 inch high laminate countertops that are probably original to my house built in 1951. I will be replacing my sink so it will be removed before I attempt anything. I was thinking I could cover the countertops with 3/4 inch plywood and do stained shiplap on top of that. My backsplash is same laminate as counters and I would like to shiplap that same as counters. Has anyone ever tried this?

Any tips?
