Step 5 Cutting a Laminate Top to Length 5.1 Measure the length needed onto the face of the top. Place a strip of masking tape from the backsplash to the front over the area that will be cut. Even though the top will be cut from the underside, the tape will help minimize chipping to the laminate. Mark the dimensions at the very back of the splash and the lowest part of the dropedge on the masking tape. 5.2 Turn the top over to expose the underside and transfer the dimen- sions. Draw a line between the two marks. 121 5.3 Set a saw guide to the underside of the top and clamp or fasten it into place. Confirm it is perpendicu- lar to the top. ©2017 PCS Professional Cabinet Solutions. All Rights Reserved. Section 1: IMS 121 7
