I need to cut one of the molded bathroom counter tops. I believe that they are made basically of a fiber glass resin of some sort. In researching what type of blade I should use it apears as though a 40 - 60 (7 1/4 in blade)tooth carbide tipped blade with a TCG grind would be appropriate. I am wondering if there is anyone out there that has cut this material with a saw, what type blade they used and how successful they were. Cleanness of cut etc.

Any type of a bath counter can be cut with a typical carbide toothed saw blade. The only 'catch' is that the counter needs to be cut from the bottom.

To avoid chipping, you need to flip the countertop over so that you run the saw along the bottom, not the top of the counter.

This prevents chipping of the top finished surface since the saw bald rotation cuts "up" and by cutting from the bottom eliminates this "up" ward chipping.
