"B. Truck,  you can make an edge with either an ogee or a roundover bit on the router that looks nice on the edge of ply. Glue it and pin it in place.  I don't like edge tape, looks cheap.  When you paint it use pen-trol with…"

You are most welcome Michael.  It has been a good thing for me and very popular with my customers.  It is like a a souvenier to them as it is something they can look back at years from now and enjoy it all over again.  The best part for you is that they will be showing it off to  many and thus many will see and learn of your work.  The software I use is the DVD PIX PLAY by Xequte out of New Zeland  ( which allows you to make a super good slide show of your work allowing you to build a cdv show and a dvd to play on tv's and computers and then i use the software called  "smilebox" out of the stated of Washington that allows you to make slide shows that you can post to a web and or send in two versions including a link to the slide show.  the smile box allows you to burn a dvd and is one you download and I pay a total of about $6.00 per month with unlimited use.  They store on their secured servers your slideshows.  I have some back as far a 4 to 5 years ago.  It is one software of which I often use to send a large number of photo to any part of the world and as many as 400 photos at one time with just a flick of the finger.   if interested both have trials that you can use to see how you like them and they are limited only in that you can not burn or e-mail the show you make.  I believe the dvd pix play also limits the number of photo s you can use in the show however again this one is unlimited in the number after you purchase it.    it got so popular here that i was getting calls from prospective customers wanting cds to view of project that I have done.  This where i then developed the mnaking of a business card that i would send either by cd or bya smilebox link.  I even was making cd business cards of other business companies to use.  (hint good side line and enjoyment for you wife or children)  I was making as high as $250.00 per master disk for a business.
