Edge Band The Plywood

Edge banding covers the edges of plywood and makes the panels look almost like solid-wood planks. Make the 1/4-in.-thick edge banding by resawing 3/4-in. thick by 1-3/4-in.-wide lumber in half. Remove the saw marks and reduce the stock to 1/4-in. thickness with a planer.

8 Edge band the fronts of all the partition-panel sections (parts L, M and R). Overhang the edge banding about 1 -in. beyond the top end of parts L1, M1 and R1. This overhang is trimmed after the next step. Use a caul to protect the edge banding and spread out the clamping pressure.

Attach the top edge banding

(part B, Fig. E) with two small trim screws (see Sources, page 108). DO NOT GLUE. Then trim the overhanging front edge banding flush, using a handsaw.

Flush trim the front and top edge banding on the vertical partitions (parts L, M and R).
