    Help me fit board in my car!

    Ok Home Depot near me will only do 2 cuts on 1 4x8 sheet of MDF. I need to know what size those cuts need to be so i can get all of my box out of the sheet and still fit those boards in my car to drive them home.

    External Enclosure Parts:

    2 x Top & Bottom (3 parts) = 33 x 27

    Left & Right Sides =
    Side 1 = 25 1/2 x 11 3/4
    Side 2 = 26 1/4 x 11 3/4

    Front = 27 1/4 x 11 3/4

    Back = 33 x 11 3/4

    L Port Internal Assembly Parts:

    Front to Back = 20 1/2 x 11 3/4
    Extension = 3 x 11 3/4

    edit: Forgot to mention boards can be no wider than 32 in and longer than 72 in

    Not always. I went to Lowe's and they told me they could only do one cut. The guy was probably just a lazy bastard though.

    Give the kid at the saw 10$ and your cut-list. Total **** tier home depot if they won't do a few cuts for you.

    Take your cut list in. Usually they have it where an additional cut is a dollar but I have never had a problem. My home depot and lowes will always cut however many I need. Sometimes the saw isn't sharp... So be careful

    It you have them do any of your actual cuts, tip the employee to help ensure you get good cuts. I have seen them up to 1/4" off in some cases.
