I don’t have an image, but I’ll try a simplified description of an elongated hole.

The “elongated” hole gets drilled into the cabinet where you will fasten the counter top. Just drill a hole that is too large – say about 1/8-3/16” larger than the screw. Then use 2 flat washers – one extra large and one to fit the screw). Tighten the screw until the washers snug up to the wood – no need to over-tighten. You want the screw to slide back and forth as the wood expands/contracts.
