  • 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...

    You might try a metal cutting blade. definitely not a skip tooth

      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.

        Right now I live in the greater Houston area, which is by Texas standards 'next door', meaning you only have to drive 4 hours, 2 of them being the Houston commute. But yea, I miss the old missions. That's why I made this project.

        Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

        How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

        The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

        If I were in the market for a new...

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. 😁

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
