Having just had a quote for my new kitchen which is way above anything I could afford, I'm considering making at least part of it myself. Notwithstanding the issues with cutting melamine MDF on a non-scribing saw without chipping, I'm wondering if it's practical to apply ABS edging yourself without the fancy banding machines that the professional cabinet makers use. Has anyone tried this? If so, what are the issues? I understand that the professionals use a hot melt glue process.
I guess for the carcasses I could buy pre-edged melamine MDF, but it's the doors that I'm more concerned about.
