Instructions II

4. Trim away the excess banding with a sharp chisel. Start with the banding ends as shown at left. Push the chisel in short strokes for good control, and don't be concerned about getting every last bit of the excess banding; you'll take care of the remainder in the next step.

If your chisels aren't sharp enough to handle this task, buy a hand-held commercial tripper from one of the sources listed at the end of this article.


5. Outfit a hardwood sanding block with 100- or 120-grit abrasive, and sand away the remaining excess as shown at left. Repeat all of these steps for the remaining edges.

Thank You for the edge banding education! I've been agonizing for sometime now how to handle the edge between the "under" farm sink and the formica top to come. Very short radii negated using formica for inside curves. Thank You again for an idea!!
