Hide the Rough Edges
To hide the rough edges of a veneered surface, use a vise to clamp the work piece, with the rough edge facing up. Place an iron-on edging strip on the rough edge (image 1), and place a piece of kraft paper over the edging strip to protect the iron from melting glue. Guide the iron over the kraft paper and edging strip to melt the strip to the work piece (image 2). Use a file to sand the edges of the strip (image 3).
