Veneer trimming guide
The guide isn't made of the sturdiest gauge of metal and was bent when I received it. It was easily straightened out but it turns out that the layout of the tool does not exactly fit my needs for trimming material already installed on cabinets. That's on me. The tool is engineered well and has definite usefulness to the right application.

While you can perform the same tasks with a good straight edge, this tool makes it easier. Due to the variety of 90 degree profiles on this tool, keeping the tool locked (positioned) on a stile or rail while running the blade to make a cut reduces the opportunity to miscut the veneer.

I found the product was not as easy to use as I expected. It required more accuracy on my part than I had hoped for.

The guide is pretty handy, but hard to get in some areas, especially when working in spots where removing the drawer rails is entirely too time consuming. It also slips sometimes when applying pressure to make cuts. I have been using it to make lines in my veneer with a pencil, and then cutting along those lines. Works spectacular for that. IDK. Wish there was a way for it to have rubber grips that would hold it in place, or even be collapsible some way.... I would be very interested in fielding this design, and coming up with something even more remarkable.

This trim tool is a great idea, however it is not deep enough for a true 3/4" face frame. If you attempt to use it to trim the inside of a 3/4" frame, you'll end up with a small exposed section of the orginal frame that will not be covered with the veneer.

Wasted my money. Could have done just as well with a metal straight edge.

pretty handy when working on face frames

I remodeled my kitchen in sections so I could pay cash for everything. Now that I can afford the rest of the cabinets - they have been discontinued. Plan B now requires veneer refacing to make everything match.
Cheryl S on Jan 5, 2016
Looked like it would be useful with my work, I am looking forward to trying this. With refacing it is important to get straight cuts and I think this tool with aid in that.
