I was looking to get a few opinions about leaving the plywood edges exposed or should I install trim? My wife and daughter like it the way it is so I am out gunned and need the support of my peeps ( guys) so let me know what you guys would do if you were in my shoes.

This is my first wood project that I designed in 3D SW and started cutting.

Looks good but I would put banding on it.

Great work! I really like the design (we have an odd-shaped den and this could work). I would definitely trim the edges – same colour or contrasting. Trim would (I think) give it a much more finished / refined look. Good luck on the trim decision. Thanks for sharing.

If it is good ply, the exposed edge can be a neat visual feature. Some like it, some don’t. I like it and have friends that like to build this way. In the end, it is all about what the customer wants. Just because most pieces are banded doesn’t mean yours has to be.

Have your say...
