Veneer-laminated plywood offers frugal do-it-yourselfers the chance to work with and enjoy expensive hardwoods and exotic wood species on a budget, but sawing these boards can leave a splintered edge that mars their good looks. The trick to clean cuts every time? Score the cutline first using Hyde’s heavy-duty 25mm Snap-Off Knife with Screw Lock and a straightedge. The knife's rubber safety grip will keep your hand from slipping as you firmly cut all the way through the veneer. Then, using a power saw, cut on the outside of the scored line for smooth edge. Available from HydeStore.com; $18.99.
