They say that one of the emotions underlying procrastination is fear. Fear of messing up in the case of me and my laminate. I ordered 6 sheets of this Lacquered Linen, a discontinued Formica product. Of the six, one arrived via ground carrier severely cracked. So going in, I knew this stuff was brittle and required delicate handling. I was also nervous about cutting it, so I watched several youtube videos to be sure how to go about it. You have to make sure the product is taped along the cut-line to avoid chipping. And use a fine-tooth jig blade. One of my problems all along has been the lack of proper tools, equipment and manpower. I don’t have a shop and I have to handle this stuff alone, being careful of its tendency to bend and break.
