I just cut a fresh sheet of MDF.

I need 4 15" wide cuts, and 2 18" wide cuts. I plotted it out on Sheet Cutting Suite, and it looked as if I wouldnt be able to get the last 18" cut out of it. All of these cuts were horizontal in portrait veiw of the sheet, if you understnad what I mean.

I cut the 4 15's, and then one of the 18". To my eye it looked as if the last peice would be too narrow, so I put it against the guide, and it snuggly fit against the blade. I then called myself a pimp, and tested it against the other 18" wide board...


It was a perfect fit.

My day has been perfect.

If you dont have a table saw, circular saws work the best. Fast and straight.

You bet it is... I wanted to get it cut so I could start bright and early in the morning. It takes two people to cut the 4 x 8 down.

Using a mid sized table saw.

Lowes or Home Depot? They **** at making straight cuts, and unless you know someone or frequent there enough that they know you, they usually charge for cuts. In the end its cheaper to buy a small to midsized table saw.
