Edging

The finishing operation of rounding off the edges of a slab to prevent chipping or damage.

Edging

 

a thin strip of wood obtained in trimming the edges of a board that has not been cut to size. Since logs do not have uniform thickness, an edging has a thick butt section and a thin top section. Small pieces of lumber are usually produced from the butt section of edgings, and the top part is used as fuel or converted into chips used in the pulp-and-paper and hydrolysis industries and in the production of chipboard. Edgings are also used in the production of laminated wood.

edge molding, edging, edge strip

Any molding on the edge of a door, counter, or other relatively thin member.

This should be laid before you put in board edging, so that the boards hold down the edges of the plastic.
Many variables need to be considered during the edging process, including fluctuating prices, inaccurate estimates of board surface measure, operator training and fatigue, and combinations of edging and trimming solutions (Abbott et al.
2003) described a prototype system that scans rough, green lumber and automatically provides an optimal edging and trimming solution along with resulting lumber grade.
Therefore, the objectives of this study were to: 1) assess the efficiency of small sawmills in West Virginia by solely using NHLA grading rules; 2) compare the mill grade of a board with the assigned NHLA grade from a private grader both prior to and after edging and trimming; and 3) examine if the effort of assessing each face of a board prior to edging would be beneficial in the edging decision-making process.
A portable stand was developed in order to imitate the edging process and properly measure each unedged board.
These measurements allowed for a good representation of the amount of clearwood as well as the amount of wane on each edge of the board, which also allowed for the analysis of how much wood was removed during the edging process.
In a typical application, the machine operator can apply an edge to a contoured shelf in less than a minute, Mattson said, edging virtually any contour the piece has as long as the inside radius is not less than about 1 inch.
