Very good Todd!Getting Clean Cuts in Melamine
Melamine is notorious for chipping out when cutting. In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine.
The blade I use in the video is a Freud LU97R010. It makes the cut on the back side as clean as on the top side.
The images of the cuts in the video are of the backside of the material where chip-out tends to occur. (I did not make that clear in the video.)
In Part II I will show you how to apply edge banding.
This is not just instructional, it really is a peak inside of my world as a professional. I hope you find it helpful.

I noticed that you have the saw blade height, what looks to be, about 1/2"-3/4" over the top of the board.
I usually have it much lower… closer to 1/4"...
Is that a major factor on the results?
Thank you very much.
