If there is one major negative aspect to working with plywood and other sheetgoods, its the fact that we have to deal with the ugly exposed edges. But with a little know-how and some strips of wood, you can dress up the edges so that only a trained eye can tell that the board is not completely made of solid wood.
A few of the topics covered in this part:
- Edge-banding options.
- Sources for solid wood edge-banding.
- Attaching edgbanding to sheetgoods and trimming it flush with the surface.
- Cutting grooves and rabbets for the back panels with a router and edge guide.
- Using an inexpensive miter box.
If you are interested, we now have a digital plan available for this project. The set includes a PDF plan/cutlist and a full-featured Sketchup file. The download is available in the Wood Whisperer Store.
