attachment technique that beats all the rest.

A laminate countertop with a maple edge is the topic of
conversation here. The questioner seeks a secure, stable
solution. If you have a design you swear by, share an
explanation and an image here:

At the CNC Forum, this malady has been presented: ''fluffy''
edges on freshly cut 15mm marine ply. Remedies are rolling
