I am reconfigurating a craft room. I have 2 preformed 8 ft counter tops
that make and L shape with a 45 degree cut in the corner. I want to cut
one of the 8ft from the straight edge down to 36 inches. the other one
down to 6ft from the straight edge. I know I have to clamp a straight
edge to cut these for the plate of the tool.
My question is:
Do I cut it it from the MDF side or the laminate side. Best tool?
circular saw, or var. speed orbital jig saw.
If circular saw do I use laminate blade or combination blade. If I can
use my jig saw which I am more comfortable with, what blade do I use. I
have a Dewalt var. speed orbital jig saw.
I have also seen some place that it is best to put a piece of tape along
the laminate side where you are trimming it down to reduce chipping of
Thanks for help.
