    Hi Guys,

    A simple question but one i think is important - i need to cut two edges off to make the panel fit and i'm questioning what tool to use. The back panel is a white gloss slab.

    1: Circular saw
    2: Fine cut - manual saw
    3: Standard wood saw

    These are the 3 I have to hand but can purchase something different if need be. The two edges to the be cut will be to the wall and floor thus covered with silicon.

    Cheers

    for the help!

    I'd use a table top type circular saw - with the finest toothed new blade as possible, and cut your material good side up. Set the fence accurately.
    Have a test run on an unused area first if you can and expect a bit of break through on the unseen side.

    Agree with Burnerman, though you can get a perfect edge by cutting a mm short and applying a belt sander to finish , but as you say edges will be siliconed.
