Good day

I had to cut a few Melamine panels so, I made this quick cutting table.

With this table I can cut up to 24” width but, it can be used for wider panels depends on the “table” width.

To cut full panel (8×4), you can lay down on the garage floor 4 (or more) Styrofoam plates and cut while you “sit” on the board.

Lately, I bought a straight edge of 100” (last 2 pics) and it can cover all the plate length.

The straight edge is simple Aluminum rectangular that is used by the “Wall-to-wall” carpeting guy’s and after checking a few of them face -to-face, I was surprised how straight they are and the cost was only $21 (they have different lengths).

For better grip, I glued two Anti-skid strips (check in the bathroom department, they sell them to glue on the bath tab or shower floor and you just peel the paper and glue).

As I noticed, with the Anti-skid tapes, it’s enough to hold the straight edge by hand and make the cut but, to be on the safe side, I clamp it with two spring clamps.

Regards
niki

Nice job Niki. This might solve the problem someone was asking about a panel saw and cutting plywood sheets.

Thank you Bill

Actually, I posted it after I’ve seen MountainDrew post but, as I understand, he is looking for panel-saw plans and not other methods.

After seeing this method, he might change his mind. I know I am.
