I'm planning out a "bridge" to sit on my desk:
It is to help organize my music recording setup, some of which is shown in schematic form.This is a fairly utilitarian piece that will be largely obsc ured by the stuff on it, but I'd like it to look nice.
I'd like to make it from plywood. It will be 6' long and figure ply is less likely to be twisted, cupped, etc. But there's that curved edge, I could j ust use the iron on edge veneer, but I'm not crazy about how that looks at the edges.
I see that thicker edge banding is made (1.5 and 3mmm), but I have only fou nd it in really large quantities. I tried bending some 1/4" oak strip at Ho me depot the other day (by hand) and it looks like it would make the bend, but I wouldn't want the piece to launch itself at me someday (and I don't h ave a steamer).
