How to Cut Blinds to Fit Width

Just a quick video showing how I used a saw to trim a few inches off of these faux wood blinds in order to make then less wide and shorter.

  1. For anyone watching, just cut my faux wood (plastic slatted) Venetian style blinds with aluminium header with DeWalt chop saw. I was hesitant at first then watched this video. Went real slow on the cut and it came out smooth. Tiny bit of darkening of the plastic were I went too slow and it heated up. All said and done happy with the result. P.s. taping the blinds did help, if you're not certain I would spend the extra one minute to tape either side of where you're cutting

  2. I wasn't looking forward to fitting my blinds, then I watched this.
    Half an hour later I have 3 windows with new blinds. I didn't use a chopsaw, just a hacksaw and it worked wonderfully.
