laminate cuts

If your laminate is formica or equivalent, the best way to cut is with a router with a formica cutting bit. You can get straight bits, trimming bits, and bevel bits, depending on the type of edge you are looking for.

The cuts will be joined together for corners so im not looking for a style just a good clean fit..

laminate cuts

I own a Rigid corded and a Ryobi cordless laminate trimmer. Both work well and the results are perfect. They are "palm sized" so very easy to handle. Just need to purchase the laminate bit. Rigid was about $110CDN and the Ryobi I got as an out-of-box sale for $30
