  • Floating Floor Style Material

    Hey All,

    I had a friend give me a couple box's of leftover flooring. I had enough to do our bathroom floor... and not much else. So with the leftover, I tried scrolling. Sad to say, I don't think it is good for scrolling. I wend through 5 blades just to cut the picture (attached). Also, the edges of the topflooring laminate chipped out a bit.

    Might be good for something larger... like a magazine rack... and maybe a scrolled name on it. But I think this material is a bust for scrolling...

      yea, it's basically cardboard with a plastic photo glued on top. I wouldn't scroll it, but I do have a few pieces in my shop. I'm made drawer bottoms with it. I also find it works great for glueing stuff on. Wipe it down with some johson's paste wax to help prevent glue from sticking to the surface.

        My preference would be Flying Dutchman #5, as it could handle it if you needed some tighter turns---and going to a #7 or #9 if doing a lot of straighter cuts. Plywood does dull blades a bit faster though, no matter the blade brand choice. The best blade is kinda a broad question---every brand works...

        I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

        Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
