Im going to be building a round table for a friend. Im using plywood for the top. I was thinking I could just take a thin strip of wood to edge band the top. I came across this post which looks like he did what I am planning on doing. What is the best way to meet the ends of that strip so it isnt noticeable?

I have never used edge banding in any way, I’m sure this is a simple and common procedure for some, thanks for the help.

By tapering top edge of one end and bottom edge of the other end (this would be where the ends meet), they will form a “skive” joint. This is more desirable than a plain butt joint and will give more glue surface to the ends of the banding.
