Familiarize yourself with the appropriate panel installation guide. Orient yourself to the panel and locate the lip, fingers and slots to determine the installation direction. (Figure A)
Set the saw to a 45 degree angle. With the textured face of the panel facing up and the lip away from you, make a 45 degree cut. (Figure B)
Set Side B aside. Flip Side A over so that the textured front of the panel facing is down and the edge from the previous cut is towards the saw blade, adjust the saw 90 degrees and make a second 45 degree cut as close to the end of the panel as possible. Discard the material that was cut away. (Figure C)
Using standard installation instructions, mount the first section of the cut panel.
Mount the second section by adding adhesive to the back of the panel as well as a small bead of adhesive to the edge where the panels will meet. Push the cut sides of the panels together and secure with screws. Use the fine hand file to blend the panels. Figure D
