Solid Surface Edge Buildup Techniques

There are two main techniques for applying edge buildups to solid surface

Stacked edge Buildup

Stacked Edge Buildup

Multiple buildup strips are cut and stacked.

  • Buildup height limited to 1/2" increments
  • Fully hides wood substrate (not visible from underneath)
  • Marginally stronger given the extra material
  • Can accommodate any edge profile

Drop Edge Buildup

Drop Edge Buildup

A single buildup strip is cut and turned on end.

  • Allows infinite buildup height options
  • Easiest fabrication method
  • Uses least amount of material (better yield)
  • Can't fit some very large decorative edge profiles
