Abstract

See full text

A watertight, durable, and attractive edge construction for furniture is provided that is especially designed for ease of installation while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the furniture edge. The edge construction hereof provides for the snapable insertion of a side molding into the exposed sidewall of a furniture panel, and, through the provisions of designed-in recesses, allows for the expansion of the furniture and side molding material and for the dispersion of the bonding medium used to bond the panel and molding together. The invention is particularly adaptable for use in the construction of countertops or other furniture made from sheets of synthetic resin laminate bonded to support decking.
