View Full Version : How to Conceal 3/4" Plywood Edge

07-26-2016, 12:05 PM
Hi There. I want to make photo blocks out of spare 3/4" plywood I have laying around from a previous project. I want to conceal the plywood edges, though, and have them be silver or gray.

Is it silly to put something like washy tape along the edges? I believe painting the edges would be pretty involved (using spackle, primer, then paint)? I'm looking for something quick, easy, and inexpensive.

What would be the easiest/most efficient way to achieve silver edges to conceal the plywood look?

What about the metal edging used for stained glass? Or maybe the thin metal frames - they can be cut to size.

You can get edging tape for plywood. Do a Google search.

I was thinking maybe adhering a ribbon on the edges.

You can buy a veneer that you iron on. It comes in different types of wood. If you don't like the color, you could paint it.

Home Depot or Lowe's sells such an item. You will find it with the moulding strips. They sell it in the 3/4" size and it's made of pine. Just use some finishing nails and you're done.
