The bottom of the carcass looks to be laminated solid stock to me

I found an iron from Rockler is easier to use than clothes iron. I buy 100' rolls of banding veneer from a hardwood lumber yard.

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.

+1 on solids for bottom of the carcass

I also would recommend thin strips of hardwood for edge banding. It is more durable, won't peel off and is really not very difficult to do. Rockler makes a jig to easily cut same width thin strips on the table saw.http://www.rockler.com/thin-rip-tablesaw-jig

I usually leave the strips just a little wider than the plywood then use a homemade jig for the router table and a flush trim bit to get a perfect fit. Here is an example of the jig.

It's been a couple months but here is a photo of it finished.

I wound up doing the iron on edge banding on everything. It was quick and easy and It will probably last forever considering the piece never gets touched. Working with ply was nice. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to cut all the pieces to size and do the joinery within two days. The base is white oak with tapered legs.

Thanks for the input everyone

If you must go with the iron on stuff, I'd get one of the tools Steve posted. Can't mess up using one after all
Those tools CAN mess stuff up very quickly. Especially so as the blades dull or depending on the grain of the tape. The blades (the bevel blades) are adjustable to a degree with those tools and how they are 'adjusted' and how clean they are kept plays a role as well in the quality of cut.

My biggest gripe about those tools is that the blades cost darn near as much as just getting a complete new tool.


Agree with you that solid edging would be the way to go.
