I just hit a roadblock on my project. I plan to buy 3/4"x2’x4’ MDF from Home Depot to make an arcade stick. I knew that they did cuts there but they can’t do what I wanted/need.
I had originally planned for them to cut me off a strip of it that is 3/4"x2 1/2"x4’ for the sides of the box but they won’t cut anything under 7". Total I won’t need it to be 4’ long but for the sake of them cutting it that was my plan.
I need 2 : 3/4"x 2 1/2" x 13" and 2: 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 8 1/4" for the sides. The tools that I have to work with are a Jig Saw and a Router. The only thing I can think of is to mark it 2 1/2" and cut just outside of that with the jig saw. That will leave me one factory edge and one crap edge from jig saw. Once that is cut set up some sort of device that will keep my router parallel to the factory edge and route the edge so it is flat.
Anyone think of anything else? or is this my best option?
