    Re: What is the best way to cut MDF

    Mark out your pieces on the wood first to make sure you can get it all out of one piece. Then after you have determined they all will fit just pick any piece and start cutting.

    Re: What is the best way to cut MDF

    If you have a table saw, then it should be no problem for you. I've seen guys use battery powered rotary saws to make boxes. I've used an electric rotary saw to make two boxes myself.

    Like people have said, use a straghtedge or a clamping tool guide to trace out all your pieces. Cut the big ones first and then see what you can salvage out of the remaining pieces.
