counter edging

In my 78 the edging insert on the counter of the entertainment cabinet is pulled out and seems to have shrunk. Especially where it goes around the curves. It is the same wood grain look as the counter, on a plastic insert. Can this be replaced, or redone? Any suggestions are appreciated.

If you get to a more woodshop kind of store, you can buy the thin wood strips, about 3/4" wide by 10' long or so. It comes in 2 styles. The you glue it on and wait to finish it, or the factory installed hot glue on the back kind.

The hot glue kind installs with an clothes iron and can be finished immediately.
Figure about $1 per foot, usual types, oak, maple, mahogany, birch, pine.

Glue it on to cover the edge, then use your laminte trimmer to get rid of excess.

I am fighting the same issue. FWIW laminates come in a couple of different "grades" (read thickness) not all laminates or colors are available in all grades. I used to buy what they called an edging grade. IIRC it was about the right thickness for what we need. Now the challenge is finding a good color match. I am pretty sure Wilsonart makes one that is close, but haven't had the time to track it down yet. You might want to consider some other options, such as painting or just leaving it gold. Also be forewarned the extruded corners are the same way as the edges...and I have broken a couple of those already

I am away from my home computer; however, if you will PM me, I'll try to send you the link to a company that makes several kinds of molding, including T-molding. Judy
