This post shows the eleven steps to apply cement adhesive that you place on the shelf to apply a melamine edging kit.
Step 1: First, check out the shelf edge to make sure its clean edges. Above fig.1 shows that the shelf does not have clean edges, it can still be used but it will be more difficult to get the glue to adhere. The shelf itself needs to be clean of any sawdust, the edge must be straight for an ideal job. Step 2: Fig.2 shows the shelf with the missing white edge melamine strip.

Step 4: Remove from the packaging the roll of melamine edging and unroll it so it has a chance to become straight. Fig.4 shows the roll pulled out of the packaging in preparation to be measured.

Step 9: Fig.9 shows standard wax paper is larger than the exact size of the shelf. Another way is the clamp the strip with wood and clamps but this can be difficult to do if you are not experience with these type of tools.
