Thread: Melamine Faced Chipboard
14/10/2011 19:43:48

I had to cut up one sheet for a bookcase. At first I used a jigsaw then with a hand-mire saw and finally finished off using a table saw. All seemed to chip to a varying degrees.

I decided to use this material is cheap and I’m a novice it seemed an ideal material to start with and learn skills on how use router and other tools and gain experience while completing projects around the house. I am thinking of using MDF instead but was a bit worried about the dust creates what with having kids who can help but mess.
