Ok folks Im
Your life will be so much easier.
depends on the effect you want. edges blackened or edges painted?
I cut then paint to be sure that it’s perfect
But remember the kerf… Paint actually HAS a thickness…
I definitely check the thickness prior to cutting. I hated painting that small stuff but at the very end an idea came up why not use paint markers? It worked but I think I’ll paint then cut when it comes to this again. Thanks for the input
