Just wondering if anyone knows of any effective techniques for cutting plastic chopping boards? Hacksaw is ok for straight stuff, but i'd like some nice smooth cornering action. Tried a heated-up knife, but gets a bit messy. Any experience with a jigsaw?

thanks for any tips!

You could probeb;y use a small circular saw and than just sand it of to give it a nice smooth finish. You could also use wet and dry paper (i think it's called that anyway) to give it a nice smooth finish.

Mushi - I used a fine tooth saw to get the rough dimensions and then used a rasp file to get the shape I needed.

I have used one of those small wood saws with the reinforcement bar on the back of the blade. They are about a foot long with a wooden handle.

Then i use a power plane to smooth an bevel the edges.

I guess you can use a bench saw like what hairy used to cut his digit off with, don't use the finger feeler gauge technique though.

Ho Peter,

good on ya mate :D

actually, a table saw cuts the chopping boards really well failing that a circular saw also does it well. :oops:

Mushi, you are a sick man :lol:
