The term edging refers to the decorative covering applied to the edges or borders of a piece of furniture. It is typically used to protect the edges from wear and tear, as well as to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the furniture. Edging can be made from various materials such as wood, metal, plastic, or fabric, and is often applied to tabletops, shelves, or other exposed edges. The style and design of the edging can vary greatly, depending on the desired look and the type of furniture. Thin strip of solid wood at the edge of a veneered panel, to protect the veneering.
