Burgess Edge System- A Better Way to Edgeband“When building projects out of plywood, glueing strips of hardwood to the exposed edge is the typical way to make the shelf look like a solid wood panel.

The problem is that applying these strips can get to be a real chore…”

“Improved Edgebanding¬†— The Burgess Edge system eliminates both of these problems. This system consists of two router bits. One bit cuts a concave recess in the edige of a 3/4″ plywood panel…The other makes matching convex profile in a peice of hardwood. The result is perfectly aligned edgebanding.”

“Hi Rob-I bought your plywood edge mldg. bits last week and really like how the perform. I thought you might like to know that they can be used with any size of edging ( like 1 1/4″ countertop edge ) just by cutting a relief rabbet on the lower half of the mldg. It might help to sell them if this was known. Have a good day.”

“I received the router bits a couple of days ago and decided to edge band some birch plywood with red oak. It’s beautiful! Now I’ll have to stain the plywood to match the edge.”


“I just bought your edgebanding bits. They are great. I build a lot of face frame cabinets out of quarter sawn woods. I build raised panels for all end runs and I use your bits to route out the edge of the face frame and glue in an insert with matching quartersawn grain. I then trim it flush with a flush trimming bit. It looks great. Do you have a set for 1/2 inch plywood. I use 1/2 inch plywood for upper cabinet shelves and would love to have a set for that.”
