Hey guys, been a few years since I have lurked around the forum.
Can someone tell me how to build this edge (on a low budget).
I was thinking of trying to make the mitered edge with my tracksaw. Than gluing the edge onto the top, if that makes any sense.
Is that the way to do it, or is there a better way? other than buying it all ready done.
We buy that for our counter top shop in sticks from Lewis and Co, or Wurth Baer Supply already bevelled and we apply in the shop.
Yes you can make your own, use Titebond clear for melamine or Roo glue and lots of masking tape. It's doable, but tough
Thanks, I have seen those strips online but my supplier doesnt have them.
Track saw? How the heck would that work? Miter fold on the face, then sand the edge that meets the top. Top laminate surface last. Saving money by not buying from a supplier will be eaten up times 10 with all the labor needed.
Track saw bevels,thousght it would come out cleaner than the unisaw, dont have a panel saw.
If it doesn't turn out ill cut it off and make square edge, no biggie.
...only other method I've seen besides the premade edging
cut a 3" strip of 1/2" mdf. apply laminate. cut a 4" strip of 1/4"mdf. apply laminate. cut the 1/2" strip into 9/16 strips. cut the 1/4" laminated mdf into 1.5" strips and cut a bevel on one long edge with the unisaw and a fine tgg blade. glue the 1/2" strip onto that bevel using masking tape and white glue. when dry run the whole thing verticaly on the unisaw to cut the excess overhang of the 1/2" top strip. sand the back, stick it onto the countertop with white glue. done. pain in the a**. better to buy it.
Decorative high-pressure laminates are usually used for furniture tops especially on flat surfaces, including cabinets and tables. Decorative compact laminates are sometimes constructed as toilet cubicle systems, laboratory tables and kitchen tops. Some new usage models include wall panels with conceptual designs and custom print.
