I'm planning on installing a bunch of 1/4" ply sections for use with
slotting dishes. The edges of the ply will be facing out. Anybody have
an innovative method for finishing those 1/4" edges? All I can think
of is several coats of paint until they look smooth.
Plywood edges will finish to a nice, smooth looking surface using normal
sanding methods as long as there are not voids showing. If there are, fill
them first. I think you'll be surprised how nicely they'll come out. Try it
on a couple of scrap pieces first if you aren't believing it<g>.
Break the edges after sanding & before painting so you won't have any
splinters or edges so sharp that bumping them with something knocks the
It's a pretty simple process overall. You should be able to find
corrobating information with a search engine rather easily also. I don't
have time to look it up right now.
