After I glued the oak edging to two layers of G1S fir plywood for a
countertop, I attempted to level the oak a little finer with my trusty
belt sander and made a mess of the plywood. It looks good but you can
feel the undulations where the softer wood of the plywood was sanded
more than the rest. What product can anyone recommend for 'releveling'
the plywood face before the installation of plastic laminate?
Sounds to me like a great excuse to buy a Lee Valley Low-Angle block
plane - can't let that happen again! In answer to your question, I'd
agree with bondo, or a thick layer of wood putty, HAND-sanded flat with
a good backer block.
I know of nothing that contact cement will NOT stick to (except maybe
Teflon or wax paper -- haven't tried that yet.). We're talking small
change here, so by all means experiment and verify before installation.
