Making Clean Cuts in Melamine

Melamine is notorious for chipping out on the back side when cutting. In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine.

The blade I use in the video is a Freud LU97R010. It produces a clean cut on both the top and bottom of the cut.

The images of the cuts you see on the video are of the backside of the melamine, this is where the chip-out occurs. You will see they are very clean cuts.

In Part II I will show you how to apply edge banding.

Hope you find this information helpful!
