Here is a simple way for you to make your own hardwood edge banding to finish off those plywood or MDF panels and shelves from 1/2" to 1" thick.

Simply set the male groovers in your router table so that the center point of the bit is centered on the stock and make the cut. Now using the female grooves in your router table, set the height of the bit so that the center point of the bit matches the center point of the panel stock and then cut out the hardwood stock material. Glue the two pieces together and flush trim the edges if necessary. Two styles available. The 90° bit set (A) also makes horizontal v-grooves or double sided chamfers. The 60° bit set (B) features a tongue and groove design for a larger gluing surface. All bits two flute, carbide tipped, anti-kickback design with bearing guides, 1/2" shank.

Router Safety Chart - Suggested Speeds:

Bit Diameter Max Speed
up to 1" 24000 RPM
1-1/16" to 2" 18000 RPM
2-1/16" to 2-1/2" 16000 RPM

Router Safety Tips:

  • Always wear eye and ear protection.
  • Always use properly sharpened bits.
  • Never use bits that are dull or damaged.
  • Shank must be completely inserted into collet and then backed-off approximately 1/16".
  • Don't "bottom-out" bit in collet.
  • Never partially insert bit into collet. Minimum 1" of shank needs to be in collet.
  • Tighten bit securely and recheck periodically for possible slippage or "run-out" due to wear.
  • Keep collet clean and replace if worn.
  • Never start the router with the bit in contact with wood.
  • Always feed your work or router in the proper direction against the bit rotation.
  • Don't force feed the bit or overload your router, Feed at a constant moving speed to avoid burning the wood.
  • Do not face tool's discharge when operating.
  • Always unplug router when changing bits or making adjustments.
  • Use a router table and fence whenever possible.
  • Make sure your work piece is properly secured and use push blocks, sticks and featherboards whenever possible.
  • Keep all your bits, bearings and assemblies clean, lubricated, and securely fastened. To avoid damage, store them properly in a pouch, box or tray.
  • The bigger the bit, the lower RPM recommended (see chart).

I cut over 60 feet of edging over the weekend. Using the edging bit was easy in my router table, ripped the pieces on the table saw next to it, run it through the router and back to the saw. However, plywood was a pain. It tends to tear out the edges of the ply. If you don't go deep enough into the edge, it leaves a gap when you insert the banding. If you go too deep then it tears out both sides of the finish veneers. So with some playing I found a "good enough" position. Also make sure you make the banding thicker than the ply by 1/16 or more on each side, since plywood is not exactly the same thickness I found that it would be off center and then short on one side and over on the other. So be prepared to sand sand sand to get a smooth seamless edging on both sides. Using upper feather board is a must to keep everything tight to the table. Good luck and hope to use this again on another project.
