I edge-band plywood shelves with solid wood, attaching the edge-banding with #20 biscuits. It’s no problem at all to hold the plywood shelf solidly while cutting the slot; that’s what bench dogs and an end vise do so well. But the edgebanding itself can be a little squirmy, either bending or rotating when held between dogs or slipping if held by the ends in a vise.
I finally realized I could use the Veritas Wonder Pup to capture the edgebanding between the Wonder Pup and a dog while another dog kept the edgebanding from rotating. With the biscuit cutter registering off the benchtop, this setup is nice and secure. –James Quinlivan
