Tutorial Series: Cuts and Measures

Posted by Cassie Venable on

It’s time for another tutorial to make your DIY-life a little bit easier!

This month we are tackling cuts and corners. We designed our peel-and-stick reclaimed wood planks to be as easy as possible for you to cut and install. No power tools necessary. You can hug us later!

Grab yourself a pencil and a saw and let’s get started.


1. When you’re at the edge of the wall and need to make a cut, we recommend aligning the next board to the edge of your project, and mark the end where a cut is needed.

2. Extend the line across the board and cut using one of the following cutting methods.
3. There are multiple ways you can cut your reclaimed wood planks. Using a utility knife, make multiple passes along a straight edge to score the plank. Then, place it on the edge of a solid surface and snap the piece. Using a handsaw with a mitre box, align your mark and make the cut. Using a jigsaw, make sure your piece is supported, then cut along the mark, using a square as a guide. Or for the most professional results, we recommend you use a miter saw.

Done and Done!

And just like that, your boards are perfectly cut to fit your space. Reclaimed wood elements in your home shouldn’t have to require hiring a professional. You can find all of our peel-and-stick wood planks right here on our website.  

For an even closer look at the beauty and design of our wood, get yourself a free sample pack and try them out in your own space, coffee cup in hand, pajamas encouraged.
