In your future kitchen, you may need to cut the worktop for two reasons: either adapt its length to the piece of furniture intended to receive it, or create a location for a sink or a hob.

Cut out the work plan: work is done inside out

In all cases, the cutting is done on trestles and especially upside down of the work plan to protect the laminate. To cut the plan lengthwise, a reading of the measurements on the piece of furniture is necessary, and precedes a pencil drawing made using a square. A metal ruler fixed with an attached glass will then serve as a guide for regular cutting with the jigsaw. If it is necessary to cut in the middle of the work surface, and then to insert a sink or hob, the recording and tracing of the measurements must be particularly precise. Before taking hold of the saw, it is necessary to make holes in the drill.

Cut the worktop: be careful to protect the laminate

In fact, the big difficulty when cutting the worktop is to protect the laminate. This is also why we work in reverse. It is not useless, once the tracings made, to notch the site with the cutter, on the height of the covering. Then, to avoid splinters, it is advisable to apply a strip of transparent adhesive on the layout and to cut on it. Cutting with a jigsaw is more precise than with a circular saw. Please note, however, it requires a certain know-how, all the more if you want to achieve rounded angles!
