Sharp table counters

I came up with a solution to the discomfort of the sharp table edges. I placed lengths of removable foam tubing (split) on the table edges at strategic places. Works well!

If you are talking about the laminate edge where the top meets the edge of the table, try filing the edge down a little if it is to sharp. I worked in a cabinet shop for a while and we would never send anything out with an unfilled edge. When we bought ouro new Airstream I spent a few hours filing all edges down. Since then there have been no problems

For the awning arms, I cut and split short pieces of swimming noodles and place them over the arms. Use the brightly colored noodles.

Aluminum Counter Edging

We used aluminum counter top edging to cover those sharp counter edges, and also used it on the tops of drawers, etc...added a nice touch of aluminum detail.

We got the anodized aluminum trim at Ace hardware, but not all stores carry it. It comes in 6-foot lengths, pre-drilled and includes the screws. The product is M-D Counter Molding A-813; the Ace skew is 0 43374 69450 0 (the "69450" is the important part). You can get it through Amazaon.com as well ... when I last checked it was ~$65 for six pieces + $20 shipping, which works out to about the same as we able to find it locally once you include tax, etc. We could buy individual pieces at Ace, which is an advantage. Easy to work with and attach...it easily bends to the follow the curved shape of the edge.

Got it in one. I get mine from the dollar store, use them for the Summer, then toss them.
As for the sharp edges, I usually go around the counters lightly with a fine flat file when I am doing the PDIs on them.
