Plywood Edging

Iím making some mini furniture out of 1/4Ē thick plywood as a hobby and looking for ways to cover the edges. Screen molding is good on straight runs but not on curved surfaces and I donít want to use edge banding either (too difficult to apply on small items).



Iím looking for something like putty or paint which you apply and after dries out you sand and paint. Is there something like that out there?

Most any wood filler could be use to fill the edge of the plywood if you are going to paint it.

Thinning the wood filler with a little water helps it to get absorbed and stick to the plywood edge better.
