  • Any DIY or contractors to answer countertop cutting query?

    I need to cut off an inch or so of formica countertop. There appears to be pressboard underneath, not solid wood or MDF. We're installing a new fridge in an old house. Has anyone done this and care to offer advice?

    I read where I'll should use a 40 tooth/inch sawblade. I should use masking tape over the area to arrest splitting. Any other sage wisdom?
    The beginning is the most important part of the work.

    If you're going to cut, I'd recommend a 40-60 tooth blade, and go slow as you possibly can. Definitely dress the cutting area with tape to keep fragments at bay...

    Aside from that, cut careful and give yourself more time that you thought.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: Be confident! You've done the math, enjoy spinning up your tools!
