Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m getting ready to replace all four plywood sides of my utility trailer, and I want to improve the way the corners are handled. I envisioned a type of corner channel like my sketchup model below, that would allow me to slide the edges of the plywood where they meet to make a corner into this channel. I made this channel up, hoping that there is actually a commercial product out there that is something like it. I have searched online, but don’t even know what search term to use. If anyone has seen anything like this, please let me know. Thanks!

Hey, Jerry, I’ve never seen anything like that, but you could weld some steel U channel together so the open ends of the U are at 90 degrees to each other. Then get it powder coated so it won’t rust. HTH

Hey Jerry, check this out, and similar.

This# one in particular

I got there by typing “aluminum extrusion plywood corner” into google

Here’s a bunch more

If it were me I’d do like Art says and weld two steel U channels in this shape.

Correction, I did a search on Home Depot’s website for corner channel and got nothing. I did get a lot of good results using that search term on Google. Thanks John.

I’ve seen aluminum extrusions like that used to hold the platforms of waterbeds together at the corners, the sides were plywood.

There are several products available for 1/4” panels. Look for extrusions for ‘Marlite’ shower panels/

Why not just bolt some angle iron to the plywood corners?
