Cushy Cupboard -found a neat way to cut

Posted by datura-07 (My Page) on

I ordered some and have been having so much fun redoing my cupboards.
I purchased the 24 inch rolls and wanted to cut it for 12 inch ones. I wasn't sure how to cut it down the center and then thought "Why not use the band saw!!!" I just took the wrap off and taped the edges so they wouldn't move and used a fence to maark the 12 inches. I kept one side to the fence and rolled it into the saw. IT was a Beautiful Cut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and so much faster than marking and cutting.

I also cut it for my pots on a lazy susan They all look so nice and everything slids so nicely.

YOu have to get some if you haven't tried it.

Other uses for a band saw

*LOL* Datura, thanks for sharing!

Band saws also work great for cutting frozen food - roasts, boxes of shrimp, etc. (Yes, I clean the blade afterwards).

but, but, but--Lena--do you clean the blade *before*?

Good idea TS!
( 'course it did seem like a good way to sneak more fiber into the family's diet.)

(I'd rather eat wood fibers than have food smears on my fine woodworking, actually)
