HOW TO EDGE MELAMINE BOARDS

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Savvy Storage -

STEP 1 Cut a strip of edg­ing slightly longer than your piece of board. STEP 2 Hold against the edge so it over­hangs equally at the sides. Cover with a cloth, then run a hot iron over it to melt the glue on the edg­ing. While warm, run a block over it to make sure it’s firmly stuck to the board. Leave for 30 min­utes for the glue to set.

STEP 3 Use a ra­zor­blade scraper or fine file to trim off edg­ing flush with the board. Work to­wards the board so you don’t pull the edg­ing off. Fin­ish with a very light sand on the edges us­ing 180-grit sand­pa­per.
