    In the shop I do them upside down So I can epoxy the patch across the seam for strength before I turn it over.
    On the jobsite it can only be done right side up.

    After you sand the edges you can flame the edges with a propane torch. Just run it along the edge quick and it will polish it.

    I will be using it primarily for cabinet work in the beginning. I have not decided yet what I will use for vacuum. The phenolic I have is Formica brand that came from a large cabinet shop nearby.
