Making edge banding by accident.
« on: July 24, 2014, 10:16 PM »

Had to take the edge off a length of some SugarGum the other day. Used T55 tracksaw and rail. After I finished I realised that I had made my first piece of edge banding.

Although I did not need it, I will remember this for when I do.



SugarGum is an Australian wood used in decking and in furniture manufacture.

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

Very handy for edge banding by accident.

I keep the off cuts from straight lining boards with the track saw. I just put them near the planer. When I am running other stuff through the planer I plane them while I am at it to take the rough side off and get a uniform thickness. I store them in a rack made from 4" PVC pipe. That way I frequently have a piece for banding or whatever readily available with almost no extra work.

No,
Thank you.  [big grin]

Excellent tip, will start doing that, but I bet your production rate will be extremely greater.   [smile]
