I am getting ready to start a project which requires cross banding the veneer around the outside edge. This is something I haven't done yet and would like to know if any of you have done this? The top will be veneered and the cross banding will be applied after the main field is dry. This will require routing / cutting or whatever to reveal the substrate to allow the cross banding to merge with the main field. I have thought about using a marking gage with a knife point to score the band around the perimeter and then using a plung router to remove all the waste area. Is this a viable method? Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
