Kitchen counter , my jig saw *and I do not cut very well. Slanty and not precise. The edge trim is a hassle and cracks. I am thinking of routing and then filling the edges. Going crazy. Anyone help please ?

Your best bet is to spend time making an accurate template from half inch ply or MDF; clamp it to the kitchen worktop then use a router fitted with a bearing pattern follower to cut it right first time.
If it's a straight forward cross cut and you don't have the use of a circular saw; clamp a straight edge to the worktop and use your jigsaw to give a rough cut about half an inch longer than required. Reset the straight edge then use the router to remove the last half inch leaving the worktop cut with a neat straight edge to the required length.
Hope that helps.

You could make a simple jig out of ply that fixes to the base of your router & allows you to cut arcs & circles.
The longer the jig the bigger the arc, this is mine for cutting circles, nothing complicated just made from a piece of Perspex.
