Postform edges

Postform front edges are soft on the eyes as well as the touch.

downside: inside corners need mitered seams which are tougher to clean and may provide a moisture problem.

upside: easy edge to clean, good moisture protection at front.

tip: when choosing the 180 degree edge, make sure you have more than the average overhang at the front, as water will return some under the edge. You don't want water in your drawers.
