I have a visual of a snack bar top I am interested in building. It will have a slight gentle curve something like a boomerang, but not nearly as drastic. The ends will be rounded and tapered with more severe curve than the gentle curve in the middle.
I am thinking about using MDF with a laminate and finishing with epoxy.
I would also like to round over the edges. Perhaps something like an ogee or maybe a simple round over.
I would imagine banding flat planes is pretty straight forward, the thought of applying edge banding to a rounded edge, that also has curves has me thinking this may be too difficult to tackle and maybe I should just use a nice wood.
The laminate I’m interested in using is a ginger root maple matte.
Has anyone ever veneered a roundover or used a laminate over a rounded edge on a surface that also has a curve ? The roundover doesn’t seem really daunting but in combination with a curve ?
I have never laminated before and I’m am intrigued to try this out as it seems more interesting than simply glueing up some boards, cutting them to the shape I want , and finishing it.
So what do you think ?
Any suggestions ?
Is the edge banding doable on a round over and curve ?
Thanks for reading.
