A sheet of rigid foam insulation (sacrifical) under the sheet you're
cutting (then laid on the ground or floor) is said to help as well. The
beadply is then better supported, and less prone to splintering as well.
How's the deli coming?
Yes, I'd heard that one and then cheaped out as the foam was about $25.
Maybe I wasn't looking at the right thing. I think I'll just try to cut
it on a counter edge with some help holding the cutoff piece and see how
Anyway I'm done with all the major cutting and screwing stuff. It is coming
together very nicely if I say so. Maybe I'll post some pics if anyone
cares. I have to warn you, though, to be prepared to see lots of heavily
polyurethaned hard maple counters! I think they look great, and hopefully
will stand up to normal wear and tear.
I never thought the poly was correctly a religious thing. It certainly has
its place, and kitchens are quite often that place.
There have been a number of active threads on kitchens lately, so I imagine
that there would be interest on your project as well.
And on the beadply, you may want to at least invest in a sharp blade for
the circular saw. That should help, and not break the bank.
