How to Cut Laminate Flooring Dust-Free with a Circular Saw

Learn how to cut laminate or hardwood flooring dust-free using a circular saw and some simple jigs! If you’ve ever cut and installed laminate flooring before, then you know that it creates a dusty mess. Cutting outside is time consuming to go back and forth and still makes a mess of the outdoor space. I’ve come up with a few jigs that work with a dust extractor and a circular saw that allow near dustless cuts.

Being able to make all the rip cuts, cross-cuts and notches right along side of where the flooring is being installed is a huge time saver. These jigs have been a game changer for me on laminate flooring installation jobs and ultimately allow me to make more profit. The two main jigs consist of a cross-cut jig and a ripping jig. Both of these jigs are used with the circular saw to make accurate and dust-free cuts.

RJF Transport says:

What type of blade will cut laminate.. i cut some in my table and chop saw that destroyed my blades. Dulled them very quickly

K.B. Woodworker says:

Very nice. I’m making the cross cut jig, though not for flooring. Question: How do you see the cut line on the ripping jig? It looks like the dust containment part on the saw would get in the way.

Glenn Felpel says:

Excellent video, It shows that you put a lot of effort into these presentations.  And the content is just as good.  As for me this one comes at a good time for I have a large laminate job coming up soon.   Thank you!

Mark Feliciano says:

Ok, lame question, but where did you get the dust collection flange that you use on the saw portion of the jig?? I can’t find anything under 2.5″

nyla bone says:

great job! I’m don’t install flooring very often, but still entertaining and useful.

MonkeyBlueAss says:

I’ve never thought using vacuum cleaner to avoid cutting dust – BIG TIP! :)))

Leonard Gump says:

I have been putting off replacement of grungy carpeting in my RV. Have been storing and cursing boxes of laminate stored in a busy closet. I’ll be making thrdr jigs soon so I can complete this project as quickly as possible. Next Spring we’ll be traveling with new flooring. Thanks for the ideas, directions and the demonstrations.

Nice setup, you get a much cleaner cut this way than using a jigsaw or similar. I used my track saw when I last fitted flooring, I have a short track that made it really easy and I just used a couple of scraps as shims.
