finish off rough edge on thermofoil piece

mrtulinOctober 19, 2013

I am repurposing thermofoil, not-wood cabinent bottom from a ordering mistake (my fault;no returns) Some edges are unfinished. How can the rough edges be finished?
thanks.

You may be able to purchase a roll of edgebanding material from the manufacturer and have your carpenter attach it to the unfinished edges. Good luck!

Edgebanding only works with melamine flat edges, like shelf edges or a square flat slab door. Thermofoil is a single piece of plastic shrinkwrapped around the MDF substrate. If you cut it, it really can't be repaired.

It is a shelf edge. It doesn't need to BE perfect or perfectly repaired. It needs to be a presentable, functional edge in a moderate visibility area that's a mudroom, anyway.
You can tell I reallly really want the answer I want.
Seriously, thanks.

If you can't get the edgebanding from the manufacturer...I've used the edgebanding from Rockler--goes on with a household iron--and it's worked on a number of thing just fine. Wouldn't put it next to my oven, but, then, my (20 yr old) thermofoil cabs think that's a bad idea too.
