LOTS OF OPTIONS

There are lots of options for cutting Weekend Walls for every skill level.  Some of our products can be cut with just a razor knife and a square!

METHOD 1: THE MOST PREFERRED METHOD OF CUTTING

Using a jig saw is the easiest way to cut Weekend Walls. It is easy, quick and accurate. Plug-in versions of jig saws can be purchased for less than $45 and will do all of the cuts including cross cuts, rip cuts and accurate cuts for around outlets.

METHOD 2: RAZOR KNIFE AND SQUARE

Some of our products can be cut with a razor knife and a square. It just takes a few cutting scores on each side to get you installing.

Using your square draw a line where you want to cut the wood.

Using the square as a guide for the edge of the blade, use the razor knife and cut 5 times in the same place. Flip the board and repeat. You should easily be able to snap  the board exactly where you cut.

METHOD 3: MITER SAW AND SQUARE

A simple miter saw and square work just fine as well. This is a very inexpensive option and is available at most hardware stores.

MITER SAW TIP - Start your cut by pulling the saw towards you for several times. Once you have started your cut, then you can use a back-and-forth motion.

METHOD 4: CHOP SAW

It is best to equip your chop saw with a blade that has many teeth.  The more teeth on the blade, the smoother the cut and the better the fit.  Remember, mark twice, cut once!
