What Type of Edge Banding?
« on: April 09, 2021, 07:38 PM »
Does anyone know what type of edge banding this is? Festool Conturo photos and brochures always show a photo of an edge banding that looks like exposed plywood layers. Thanks for any help.

If it wasn't for the appearance of chamfered corners on top and bottom, I would say that the image represents the "before" picture of a piece of plywood, rather than the "after".

I wonder if @Festool USA or @DerickC would be able to shed any light on it.

It's just a photo of Baltic Birch ply before it's been edgebanded, a very popular option in Europe.

Thanks! It was so perfectly uniform and with chamfered edge I thought it was an edge band. I have made many items with exposed BB edge, but I liked the uniformity and style in the image and hoped it was applied.

It looks applied to me. If you look at the sharp corner you can see the cross-section of the edgebanding as a solid brown line.

I have seen this photo in many marketing documents for Festool and curious to see if anyone has any additional thoughts. I have been reading up on the Conturo (considering purchasing one since I am about to jump into building about 30 new kitchen cabinets) and keep seeing this image and started thinking about how I would like to incorporate that into a future design. Again, I can just leave a good high-quality BB exposed, but I have never seen a sheet good available here in the US that would look this uniform if left exposed (image shows a perfect uniform ply thickness, each same thickness, color, etc.)...and its the reason I thought it may be an edge band. Thanks all!

It is edge band with a plywood pattern, a popular option here. You are looking at the finished product in the Festool photo.

Well that's interesting.  Who knew I didn't need to bother edge banding plywood  [huh] Been wasting my time.  [smile]

   Of course the fake plywood edge looks better then real plywood edge, and provides a finished protection. Can also be used to turn MDF ( or what ever) into plywood.  [wink]

Thanks for that Alex...who'd of thunk?

I also noticed that it's manufactured from ABS so it'd be tougher than a wood edge but there's still some weird incongruities going on here.  [smile]

It's just a look, one of many possibilities.

And it mostly covers chip board.. So let the ply show! The real deal  [smile]
When opening bespoke kitchen drawers and such here, there’s a quality stamp to show when ply ends are visible and natural.

Well, compared to chip board. Most would say solid wood is the quality option, but I do like the look of that multiply banding.

Except of course...it’s simply multi-ply LOOKING plastic which is trying to mimic the look of wood...there’s something inherently wrong with this entire concept.

So the logical extension for this discussion, is to produce chip board looking edging made from plastic. That way, you can apply that to those solid walnut & cherry shelves and not feel guilty about burning up natural resources when friends drop in.  [blink]

Solid wood is very expensive here in Europe.

Almost all kitchens, and furniture in the cheaper section (Ikea ed) is made out of particle board that is laminated and edge banded to give it a better look.

Plywood is almost never used in factory made furniture, and solid wood is only reserved for the highest class of furniture where you have to pay dearly for it.

There is a company that makes an edgebanding that looks like that. I don't remember of the top of my head who though. We got a roll of it a few months ago for a particular project. The one we got was wider than a single sheet of 19mm particle board or other sheet goods, maybe 50mm? I will look into it tomorrow. It is not PVC though, it's actual veneer. I assume that it is available narrower, but not sure.

A cafe chain we used to fit out used the 'ply look' ABS edge banding on Maple melamine doors, for their storage cabinets and front counter cabinets.

I found it and finally remembered to take a pic. I remembered right, it is wood, not PVC and 50mm wide.

Yes thats the muiltiply I referenced earlier (real wood). I know edgeco has it at other widths other than 50mm too. However it doesnt look exactly the same as the pic from festool.  I think that photo/rendering is heavily doctored or computer generated.

I found it online as "Diverso Edgebanding" and it seems to be an Australian product (or available there).

I put some on a countertop edge a few months ago and a big issue came up. What do you do at a corner? Do you line up the layers as if it really was built from layers, or do you alternate them, like it would be if you looked at actual plywood?
If I remember right, the decision was match them up, that time anyway.
