How do you finish face frames that butt up against finished plywood at the 90 degree point? I sometimes wrap the plywood with a return. Once I biscuited the frame to the ply glued and clamped which worked but I had trouble spots where I sanded through the veneer where it was a little uneven.
It’s a Problem because I am building a wall unit around a fire place with mahogany plywood and African mahogany frames/doors and I don’t know what method to go with. I've seen on a lot of furniture there is a small 1/32 or less line where the front hardwood meets the sides. Do you bevel the plywood a hair? I could use some help. I want it to look good. Also, one of the cabinets is a 45 degree tv cab and I'm a little lost on finishing the edges off. Any help is appreciated.
From contributor B:
I'm a finisher and not a builder, but from my experience if you can use the quirk line on the hardwood ascetically, then that is a nice way to go. If not, then our shop leaves the hardwood a hair bigger, then goes back over it with a flush cut router bit and uses hand scrapers to bring it flush with the plywood before sanding. I like the quirk line because if your environment and material are not stable the hardwood will either shrink or grow. In our environment, south Florida, it usually shrinks once it hits the AC home. The quirk alleviates some of that concern.
