Galley countertop edge

I did some preliminary work on the fidley rails that trim the exposed countertop edge in the galley. Since the counters are quartz, there is no easy way to mechanically fasten the fidley rails in place. As a trail run, I ran a 3/4" dado through some of our mahogany stock. This slips over the 3/4"x1/2" of exposed edge that I left along the front of the counters. Everything fit up nicely and I left it in place for now with a hold-coat of varnish to protect the wood. Its just press fit for now but when I get around to doing the rest of the galley trim, I'll go remove it and run a nice profile on it (probably just a quarter round on all exposed edges) and glue it in place permanently.


  1. Hi Peter. Nice idea with the dado to create the edge trim. What type of glue will you use for the final assembly? Terry

  2. Well, since I don't plan on ever removing this trim I'll probably use 5200, or something similar.
