George Vondriska teaches you how to cut plywood on a sliding miter saw. This includes selecting the correct side of the wood, carefully operating the saw and deciding when to use a scoring cut or a complete cut to get the best possible finish.

    George:
    I thought that I tried everything to prevent chipping when
    cutting melamine with a Skillsaw and a clamp-on straightedge (fine
    tooth,coarse tooth, blade correct, and blade backwards). Will this
    scoring cut trick work on melamine?

    • George Vondriska

      Yes, scoring first with a shallow depth of cut, then completing the cut, should work in melamine. Give it a try and let us know.

    I notice you don’t have your sacrificial fence attached to this saw. I saw it in another of your videos where it allowed you to “cut without measuring” due to the kerf cut in the sacrificial fence.

    • George Vondriska

      You’re right, in this case i didn’t use the sacrificial fence. The kerf is very handy, but wasn’t required for the cut I was making in this video.

        Thanks, George. I’ve added the sacrificial fence to my miter saw and I love it. Dust collection is a bit harder, but I guess that’s why we own shop vacs!
