Today's project
« on: April 15, 2021, 07:13 PM »
Is a simple television surround. It is not structural at all. The TV is mounted to the wall. This just wraps around it, hiding the wires, outlets, etc.
It only protrudes 7" from the wall. It is solid on the left side but the right side has doors in the end. Each panel is individually opened. This allows access to the back of the unit, hides the cable box and whatever else. I'll try to get another pic when it gets installed.

Nice work!

I'm starting a project soon that includes some laminate work surface. Hopefully I learned from the advice you gave me.

Cool, good luck to you. Be sure to come here and ask questions, if you have issues. Hopefully I have already made all of the mistakes and can help you around them.
Then post some pics when you are done.

I think it is supposed to get installed tomorrow. I'll ask the guys to send me a pic.

Thank you!
I guess I do have one before I even start - I'm building furniture for a friend's design studio. It's a big u-shaped counter top supported by wall cleats and some cabinets. He is, of course, getting a smoking deal because he's a friend. All of his cabinetry will be painted white and he wants white lam. I've sourced the laminate, but I'm not totally sure on the front edge treatment. I don't want to do hardwood, like I have in the past, because it would need to be painted and would like it would get dirty and be hard to clean. Any recommendations for an edging to use? Thanks again!

I'm having a hard time not recommending the plywood-look edge banding that was being asked about this last month or so, just because.

The most durable thing would be 3mm PVC edgebanding, but it's not exactly practical for a DIY person. It comes in huge rolls for industrial use, but it would be hard to get for a single job.
Unless you are going with hardwood, the most common thing is just to use the same laminate as the top itself.
This is referred to as "self edge". It is generally applied before the top surface. This makes it less likely to be snagged by sliding something off of the top.

Build the edge with plywood, cover the vertices edge with a strip of laminate then cover the top with the laminate overlapping the laminate edge and trim flush to the edge, then rout or sand a slight bevel to reduce sharp edge. Top and edge the same colour or different. You could add a narrow strip of hardwood to give a wider surface to ease the edge.
Might work for you.   BW
