    Now Rolf, of course he has zero clearance on his table saw. He said something about a different blade for cutting plywood he has....

    Not to encourage any further toy er tool expenditures, I won a Festool track saw at our clubs show a couple of years ago. When I finally tried it I was amazed that even on crap plywood there was NO split out. I also have a zero clearance insert on the table saw. that helps tremendously. But I am sure...

    Now Scott, you know SL&RA already thought of that. Face framing will cover the cross grain cuts and the side cuts will be with the grain. He will score all cuts before cutting. He has a piece of 4x4x2 foam insulaion that he puts under the wood he cuts with the skil saw. OR, he could cut to size...

    My only concern with pre-finished stuff is how to you repair or touch up any spots that need it.

    Commercial cabinet shops use a lot of plywood that is pre-finished on one side (inside). One of our scroll saw club members lives near a cabinet shop and periodically raids their scrap bin (with permission, of course). He brings a load to our meetings from time to time to share with the rest of the...

    He's already thought of scoring the plywood. He also has a skill saw that he used on the cabinet in my office which is finished in Satin. We are getting semi gloss today to try, which I will probably go with in the kitchen. Never thought about the shrinkage Rolf. I think I had a good idea on prefinishing!!!!...

    The one advantage of that would be doing the panels before they are put in the frame would prevent unfinished areas from showing when and if the panels shrink or move.

    Pre finished isn't a bad way to go. Some thought needs to be applied when cutting though if your using a table saw you want to score the cut line on the bottom with a razor knife to prevent chips a Skil saw you would score the top. Just pay attention to blade direction for which way the blade comes...

    At the meeting last week, Bruce was talking to a guy who said he purchased prefinished plywood in a semi gloss finish and used for his cabinets. More expensive but a time saver. So, my thought is Bruce finish the plywood before he cuts it. It would save at least a week in drying time. We are using 12...
