It is applied with a clothes iron
To apply edge banding, you'll need a clothes iron and an edge-trimming tool. A common clothes iron is fine, but you can also buy an edge-banding iron if you're feeling adventurous. First, prepare your panel for edge banding. If you don't own a clothes iron, you can borrow one from a friend or thrift shop. Make sure to use a cotton heat setting. Then, cut a piece of edge banding about one inch longer than the length of the panel. Make sure to leave an equal amount of overhang on each side. Next, set the iron to the appropriate temperature. Using one hand, move the iron across the edge banding slowly, but steadily, to avoid burning the wood or melting the plastic.
