Trimming wood edge banding
I've tried several ways to trim wood banding that has been applied to melamine, mdf, or plywood. The way I tried last night turned out to be the fastest and easiest of all the ways that I've tried it so far. The idea isn't new, it is a method used on a table saw where you add an auxiliary fence onto your standard one but lift it off the saw surface enough so that the banding goes under it. Then you set the rig up so that the outer edge of the saw blade is flush with the outside edge of the auxiliary fence and run the work through on edge.
I had never thought of trying that on a router table before but all you have to do is add a spacer under the fence so that you leave enough gap for the edge banding to go under and then set the fence flush with the bit. Quick and easy.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
