Any tips of getting nice clean cuts and keeping straight edges. I have tried a utility knife - that did not work well. A pair of scissors works well but it is hard to keep the edge free of jagged marks.
I saw somewhere recently a rotary cutter like those used for cutting cloth when sewing
being used for cutting veneer. Seemed like a good idea to me but I have not tried it.
Fiskars makes a couple with different diameter wheels, smaller wheels allow for tighter turns
just like a thinner bandsaw blades does. Most times we want a straight cut so probablt the 2"
wheel is what you want to try. You can find them in WalMart, HD, and craft centers for under $10
The wheels are super sharp. The wife has one she uses for quilting and loves it. Might be worth a try
if you have one around the house. All it could cost you is a new blade which are around $4 each.
I think whatever you use your cut edge is not going to be usable without some post processing.
Clamp the mating edges between some 3/4 stock such that the pressure is applied along the full
length, then use a block plane to shave the edges true to each other.
