Sawing Particleboard. methods and machining
[contents]If you have ever tried sawing particleboard at home, you know for sure that this work is by no means simple and requires not only skill, but also good tools. Laminated chipboard is especially difficult to work with, and when sawing it often leads to a lot of chips. That is why many craftsmen, faced with this problem, come to the conclusion that it is better to saw the chipboard when buying, especially since many trade organizations provide similar services and the price is quite acceptable.
Sawing particleboard is performed using precise formatting and cutting machines, which help to obtain workpieces of a given size and shape.
Modern models allow you to saw panel materials not only horizontally and vertically, but also at an angle.
In addition to cutting sheets, you will be helped to calculate and provide in a visual video file a few options for competent and economical sawing of sheet material (using special computer programs) and, if necessary, perform framing. However, if for some reason you prefer to do the job yourself, before sawing particleboard you will have to do some preparatory work.
Professional cutting Laminated chipboard
Professional sawing is performed with modern high-tech equipment. This prevents possible misses. After pre-cutting Laminated chipboard according to the drawings performed qualitative sawing with subsequent processing of the ends of furniture parts. Individual parts can easily be assembled into furniture and turned into a cabinet, table or kitchen unit.
It is possible to saw particleboards yourself. Different saws can be used for cutting chipboard. at home. is any hand saw with fine teeth. When sawing chipboard, the saw blade must be at a very sharp angle to the board surface.
After sawing the chipboard it is obligatory to edge the ends of the parts. edging. Melamine edging, T- and C-shaped flexible edging, PVC edging can be used for this. It is glued or embedded. Both straight edges and curved edges can be processed easily. Edging after cutting the chipboard gives the furniture pieces a finished look, while also protecting the edges of the chipboard from damage and moisture.
The quality of furniture depends on correct cutting geometry and precise particleboard cutting.
We can also order cutting of laminated chipboard. This service is slightly more expensive, but not significantly so. The cutting of the laminated chipboard is done in a similar way so that the workpieces are of perfect quality.
Marking the lines on the chipboard
You can only cut the board flat if you have marked it beforehand. Use a sharp awl for marking. Leave a small gap when you do this. A gap of only 2 mm is sufficient. Do not be afraid that the cut piece of chipboard will not meet the required parameters. Subsequently, I can get rid of the rest without any problems.
A quality jigsaw cut
Despite compliance with the recommendations given by clever people in various literature and on the forum, my sawing, to put it mildly, did not suit even me.
However, I will give them in case you have better luck:
- The T101BR laminate saw blade
- Whenever possible, use rails for smooth sawing
- Clamp the workpieces with clamps.
- Consider the side of the workpiece when sawing. One side of the saw is likely to be cleaner than the other. Accordingly, this tactic can be used to determine the visible and invisible side of the parts.
- Choose the optimum speed. When it is not yet burning, but also does not cut
- Haven’t used (alas, was lazy 🙁 ), but according to posts on the forums for better cutting and chipping use painter’s tape.
The main advantage certainly I will call experience with a jigsaw: the right hand.
Rai. Date of treatment: 2015-12-27 00:15:19 No matter how much you bother with jigsaws, and a normal hand hacksaw is much better (although slower, and it takes a lot of effort). It doesn’t take you anywhere or anything.
And in general, a circular saw is in order. Jigsaw.- It’s for rough cutting, what the hell are they trying to saw off perfectly?- I do not understand.
Alexei. Date of treatment: 2015-01-06 12:37:49 I envy your perseverance, I’m tired of sawing with a jigsaw and bought a circular saw (EPDU 750110) sawing became a pleasure, quick and smooth cut, the laminate is not broken.
Dmitry. Date of access: 2013-02-12 17:24:23 Came to the market once for a jigsaw saw. Always sawed with Bosch files (teeth pointing upwards). Was advised to try the laminate saws. Got it from. I will say that I was very pleased. Sawing is smooth without any chips, and the place of sawing as if burnished, without protruding sawdust.Disadvantages:- cutting speed is not great. when a great pressure the teeth blunt faster plus deformation from high temperature.One saw was enough to cut three boards (chipboard) 1800×500 mm, it was senseless to cut further.I cut with the Skeel jigsaw at 5-6 speeds (6 speeds in total), it’s ineffective at lower speeds.
Maria. Date of treatment: 2012-05-02 03:06:31 We saw with a jigsaw as follows: first we do on the chipboard the necessary markings, then, putting the level (it serves as an ordinary ruler) on the chipboard, a knife for cutting drywall make with pressure a deep as possible, a slit. Having departed on 2mm from this line, we spend the second identical kerf. That is how you cut the upper layer of the laminate (or veneer) with a sharp knife without chipping. The saw blade cuts the chipboard along the groove in 2mm. or in the middle, or. on the second slot. The allowance is removed by sanding and the cut is always perfect (I mean no chips).
Alexander. Date of access: 2012-04-15 12:58:44 Somehow no one mentioned that for a neat saw “without chipping” is better to use a saw with a SMALL tooth. it takes longer to saw, but it’s cleaner. And about tilting the saw sideways. Yeah, it depends on your speed, your hand and the tool itself.
ruslan. Date of treatment: 2012-02-23 15:20:01 how not tried to saw particle board with a jigsaw all the time you get a beveled cut at first, evenly going then the beveled cut goes why
I can’t say for sure, but I’m guessing you’re trying to make a very hard/fast cut. Excessive pressure causes a sideways drift. If you take your time and breathe, you can visually control sawing without turning off the jigsaw. If the lead is in the same direction. In my case, the problem is the hand. Making adjustments to this case. take (push) to the left/right
Yuri. Date of access: 2011-12-13 19:43:01 Good evening everyone!Could someone advise the exact mark of the saw for a clear cut chipboard!Does the length of the saw affect the vertical deviation?Has anyone used a jigsaw firm dyold?
Cut Melamine With No Chips
Status. Date of treatment: 2011-07-12 07:53:19 It is necessary not to wiggle the jigsaw itself. You can even cut straight without the guide, and you can work with a guide askew.
Leha. Date of treatment: 2011-01-22 17:05:45 Bimetal is more expensive, but also lives longer than tek. which is even more economical.But I am responsible cuts are still doing with a reserve and process the cutter, the quality is much higher.And in general, I do not like the laminate with wood a lot nicer to work, and things out of wood are much “warmer” and more solid.
sam. Date of treatment: 2011-01-21 00:18:36 I’ve been building furniture for years and I agree with your advice.I usually use small boshev saws with the tooth facing forward for a smoother cut.I saw a part with a small stock and finish it off with an emery board mounted on a flat bar. (http://www.samouchkamebel.ru)
Vitaly. Date of accession: 2010-10-04 21:17:50 It is best to scratch the particleboard surface with a sharp, hard object like an awl. It is enough to once with force to run the awl on the intended place of the cut. But this option is optimal only for the top of the cut. But with the right blade (for the bottom cut), you can achieve a good result.
Mikhail. Date of treatment: 2010-07-23 17:04:18 Painting tape is rubbish. Tears off the veneer along with the adhesive tape
Anton. Date of treatment: 2010-07-14 14:58:20 It is better to use saw blades marked BIM (bimetal) and the life is longer and the blade breaks less often. It is better to use a saw Bosch T101B BIM. Tested work without problems under the condition described by Alexei.2
Alexey. Date of address: 2009-07-02 14:43:15 For a clean cut I use the usual saws (tooth pointing upwards), it is better to take the more expensive ones (they saw longer and cleaner) on the jigsaw the angle of swing 0 (zero), I set the maximum speed, I use “guides for even sawing” (as the author said), the laminate on the kerf, from the upper side of the part, I pre-cut with a dummy knife. So on the underside there are no splinters t.к. the direction of the tooth upwards, and on top of the part the laminate is already cut.

What affects the cost of the board Laminated chipboard
- the quality of the raw material (whether it contains, for example, foreign inclusions in the form of bark, or, on the contrary, is made from a single species of wood);
- the amount of harmful substances in the composition;
- Whether used in the manufacture of decorative coating and what kind of coating. veneer, paper, melamine film, a special lacquer;
- The appearance of the finished product;
- country of manufacture.
The edge of the board, which has been sawn into the required parts, should be laminated with special tape

3D milling of a furniture board
3 D milling is the process of processing the material in several planes to obtain complex three-dimensional shapes with different reliefs.
Furniture board. this is one of the best materials for such a treatment as 3 D. Wood is often chosen for 3D milling. The best furniture board for 3 D machining is oak, ash or hornbeam. It is a very dense variety of wood. Pine is used less often because of its softness (low density), when milling pine furniture board may chip or resin may appear.
