Regarding Davey Board, we have found the best thing so far is a regular
band-saw. You certainly can't take the stuff to your local printer for
cutting...not if you want to remain on good terms with them anyway...the
stuff dulls their cutting blades terribly.
Does anyone out there have any better ways than a power tool? Other than
cutting layer by layer with a utility knife, by hand?
