« Part 97: Progress: Raised Dog Bowl Holders & Minecraft CircleGuideKit Review Part 98 of Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring series Part 99: Child's Tool Box & Tea Light Sets »

Before heading out to the Big Box Store, I checked to see if they had the 3/4” wide red oak edge banding I needed to finish the daughter’s two dog bowl holders. Look what I found:

Yep. You read the description right: 3/4” thick, 6” wide, 25’ long.

Heh. Here we wrap our oak planks into rolls. ;)

Preheating the iron as I type this.

Ahem. I take it you caught the major typo in the Big Box Store’s web display? ;)

Oh, Paul, quit complaining. Maybe you can put it into your steam box and straighten it back out again, but you might need to set your iron on a pretty hot setting to get it to stick to the edge of your project. Or you can always resaw it into 50 veneer edge bands, use the one you need, and return the rest for 49 refunds.

That is a really good deal. Finding 25’ long lumber is nearly impossible. And you’d have to pay for special freight charges if they didn’t coil it like that. You should probably order a few at that price and you could build a nice piece of furniture for under $25 . . . maybe a round cabinet if you can’t steam out the bend entirely.

Too bad you didn’t share the website so we could take advantage of that deal, too!
