On a table saw, cut 7/8-in. wide strips of the same ply-wood youre using for the project. Then rotate the strip 90 degrees and slice off a 1/8-in. thick strip for the edge banding. This tip lets you be creativeyou can cut off long grain strips to match the wood surface, and then cut strips with cross grain to create a fold-over effect on the other two edges of the plywood.
