Question lipping Birchply.
« on: April 13, 2015, 02:46 PM »
2 years into festool and it's given me more confidence, higher standards and cleaner lungs!

As previously mentioned I have larger shop now and can swing 8x4 around now problem and store them.  I normally get all sheets goods cut down for me to required size ready for assemble.

My next job is a hand made kitchen build to a similar spec that the customer has seen. Birchply, popular face frame and shaker doors on butt hinges. I'm going to experiment this time around and break the the sheets down myself. I have 2700 rail (plenty long enough for 8x4) and mft3 table, recently bought Seneca guide rail system on t track plus seems very easy to use. Kitchen has a 5m and 3m straight runs, so I figured one day and I should have everything broken down.
I have a question, I was going to lip with .6 iron on lipping for the shelves. I'd rather use a solid timber lipping, any suggestions for this ?
I'll do a WIP showing it being made etc. I will be hand painting/spraying myself. Stone Worktops. Really keen to get going.

Ps dust deputy aka Peter Parfitt style, in progress. Just waiting on hoses :)

6mm thick timber a tad wider than the ply thickness and glue them on using masking tape to hold until glue dries. Job done.  [big grin]

Problem? No such thing! Only a solution waiting to be found:- RJ
