Stop Tearout in Plywood
How to stop that annoying tearout in plywood.
I was working on a simple cabinet recently and I started thinking of all the different ways there are to cover the exposed edges of plywood. Veneer tape, solid edge banding, oversized edgebanding, and even joinery itself all do a fine job of hiding this unsightly side-effect of using plywood. And since plywood seems to enter our shops more frequently than not, it’s important to know how to deal with it. With a little know-how, you’ll be edging plywood like a pro in no time.
