Another "Rout" for Solid Edging

posted 1/21/2016 in Kreg Tool Tips: Routing by Kreg Tool Company

Plywood is a great material for do-it-yourself projects like bookcases and cabinets. One disadvantage with plywood, though, is that the edges aren’t attractive, and really need to be covered up. The best way to do this is by adding wood edging. You can do this in a variety of ways, one of which we’ll show you here.

If you have the Kreg Precision Router Table System or Benchtop Router Table, you can create edging that has a flush look similar to veneer edge banding, but with the advantages of solid wood. You can use edge-banding router bits (shown at left) to rout mating profiles in plywood and edging, resulting in an interlocking joint that’s sure to align.

Adding edging will give your plywood projects a professional-quality appearance without adding a lot of expense.
