A: Duh, I answered the wrong question. I bought the pure edge banding (iron-on) Worked great (You can use an iron, hair blow-drier, or heat gun (on-low); and IS stainable. --------------- I also bought the 'Edgemate' veneer (4X8) panels. My earlier reply to you was about the 4X8 panels (they must be glued). Sorry for my lack of attention-to-detail in your request. Dave
A: Put ut on with a hot iron let cold trim sand with 220 and finsh work nice
A: Yes, The panels I bought were birch (re-doing some sliding closet doors). - They're raw wood on the outside, probably sanded down to an equivalent of 320 grit finish. There's some kind of backing on the reverse surface, that sticks well to contact cement without telegraphing any glue staining to the outside of the panel. Important: Read the instructions when you get these! - If you're not using them right away, store them in you A/C spaces (not garage, or attic). I left them in the shipping box and shoved the box under the bed.) The raw wood side is porous and could 'potato-chip,' on you, if you don't defend it from hot/cold // humid/arid. Have fun. These panels are pretty gorgeous! Dave
A: The thickness is about 7/8 inches.
A: The only answer here says how wide the edge band is, but the question is how thick it is. This should be something like 0.02-0.03 inches, but I'd like to know exactly how thick it is, not to guess.
