In response to a recent post about edge banding panels, a reader asked how I'd made the grain on a panel's door run continuously around the corner and through to the cabinet's side.(Above) The grain in question is striking, which makes this treatment so effective.
The technique is ridiculously simple - so simple that some readers would come up with the idea themselves, then think 'that can't possibly be it; it's too elementary.' But some good ideas really are that elementary.
Here's my technique for wrapping the grain around a veneered panel's edge.Start by cutting your workpiece close to its finished dimensions, and mark the face near the edge you want to wrap.I used a chalk 'V' because in this example I was using walnut composite veneer for a bathroom vanity, and the chalk shows up better than pencil.
Cut a str*p from the panel that's a hair over the panel's thickness.I use a Forrest Duraline blade that makes a fine cut in veneered materials without tearing the grain.Now rip the veneer off the substrate so you can apply it to the edge.
Don't try to put the veneered edge on the 'good' side of the blade, as you normally would;...
