Table Edge Info
Types of Table Edges
There are two main types of plywood table edges. Bullnose and metal edge. Bull nose is an extruded strip of vinyl that is attached to the edge in a groove cut into the edge of the table. Metal edges are bent or extruded strips of steel or aluminum that are fixed to the edge of the table. See images below and variations of the two main types.
