    Icon32 Home Depot will cut your board?

    I heard from a few people on here, that Home Depot will cut your MDF for you, for like 25 cents a cut? Is this true? I sure hope so, that'd be awesome.

    Some people don't have a wood shop in their garage.

    That's not very good, is it? I just figured I'll hand the guy a sheet with all the specs, and let him go to work.

    I'll go to a buddy's house, use his nail gun, and put the darn thing together.

    Re: Home Depot will cut your board?

    I have them cut each piece an inch too big on width and length. Then I use a friend's table saw to finish the job precisely. If you have a friend or know anyone with a table saw, I'd go that route.

    Re: Home Depot will cut your board?

    If you're in high school, ask the teacher in woodshop if you can come in after school and make some cuts. Or just let home depot do it if that sounds a bit extreme. Just hope they don't mess up.

    Re: Home Depot will cut your board?

    They might do it for you, but sometimes they refuse to make a lot of small acurrate cuts for a project, and even if they do cut it pray that it's precise.

    I just have them cut the sheet into small pieces so they will fit into my car, then cut the rest at home with my table saw.

    had them do it for me once, never again. i'd do what matt_martin87 suggested and see if you can buy a circular saw from a pawn shop.

    Re: Home Depot will cut your board?

    circular saws can be had cheaply, and good accurate cuts can be made with a circular saw and a straight edge

    thats ur best bet, and it's always worked for me

    Those pannel saws have a 1/8 blade curf. I highly doubt the average Home Depot employee is gonna account for curf.

    Hence the sign above that pannel saw that says...

    NO EXACT CUTS.
