Ok, I'm going to stay a new thread to show my progress else it should just get lost in a thread that had nothing to do with it. So far I managed to get the base top drawer frames and top started. I tried three times with a strap clamp and it slipped off every time, the clamp method sucks too but at least I got layer on. Two more to go.
While building some cabinets for a kitchen remodel, I had to apply edge banding to several shelves. OK, it was 14 of them! I had seen a Woodsmith video where they demonstrated how to trim the edge with a router, so I tried it. That was easy and went fairly quick also. Basically, you do two or more shelves at a time. Put them on edge with a spacer in between. Then run a router with a flush trim bit along the edges. Zoom, zoom! I think the pictures tell the story better than I can describe it. The wooden hand clamps worked very well to stabilize the whole thing. Well, I might have used a couple more clamps to keep everything stable.
Has anyone here used edge banding with pressure sensitive adhesive backing vs. the iron-on type? I have zero experience with edge-banding but will need to use it in the next week or two. Have only been able to find a few reviews on the psa type and it sounds like a mixed bag. Would prefer to use this type instead of stealing wife's iron haha.
