Home Depot will cut your board?

Recommended Posts

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. :eek:

their cuts are advertised accurate within 1/8th of an inch.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Slip the manager a 20...and ask him if YOU can do it yourself :naughty:

 

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.

only have home deopt cut your wood if you plan on making a triangle box.

The one time I had them cut my wood the cuts were so un-square that i made an excuse to go out to my car then never came back

home depot cust. service here is the worst. I waited for what felt like an hour for someone to help me. When I finally got help I made sure to watch when he punched in the pin number that powers the saw. Been there many times since and noone questions me when Im cutting :up2somet:

they have a nice saw but I just use it to cut 4'*8' sheets to fit in the ride.

get a circular saw and 2 c clamps and use a scrap piece of mdf with a straight egde as a guide, cant get any straighter than that.
