CUTTING BOARDS TO SIZE SERVICE

.

A.  STANDARD CROSS-CUT IN HALF:

WEB ORDERS:

The STANDARD CROSS-CUT IN HALF service is FREE OF CHARGE  so just make a note in the place provided on your online order or email us immediately after placing your order.

PLEASE NOTE THE CORRECT TERMINOLOGY and do not confuse length with width, or cross-cuts with rip cuts.

We will cross-cut in half across the grain as shown in the picture, giving two equal lengths. Approximately 0.5cm of the total length will be lost by the saw kerf and cutting accuracy, especially with waney edge boards, is plus/minus 0.5cm.  For example, a 100cm long board cross-cut in half will yield 2 pieces at approx 49.5cm long.

VISITORS TO THE STORE:   Customers visiting the premises can also have free cross- cutting to shorten any boards to fit their transport,  any length choice,  not just halfway.

C. CUSTOM RIP-CUT SERVICE

PLEASE NOTE THE CORRECT TERMINOLOGY and do not confuse length with width, or cross-cuts with rip cuts.  We will do one rip-cut down the length of the grain as shown in the picture.  We will also plane the 2 sawn edges straight again.  There will be some loss of width – the saw cut will consume about 0.5cm of the board and the planing at least another 0.5cm,  but boards will sometimes bow after ripping by an unpredictable amount,  maybe 0.5cm per metre of length,  so further loss of width occurs taking the bow out.   Please tell us if you only want the saw cut done and not the planing / straightening.

We can rip-cut boards with only 1 cut, and re-plane straight, making 2 narrower boards, per cutting product added to your cart.  Add 2 products if you want 2 rip-cuts done,  etc.

VISITORS TO THE STORE:   Customers visiting the premises can also have free rip- cutting if it is just one or two cuts.  More rip-cuts or planing edges is chargeable.
