I've built my baseboard and tomorrow the Sundeala boards arrive.Tips on how to cut it would be gratefully appreciated.

As background info the board are 9m thick 2.4x1.2m in size and my baseboards ware around a metre square. I want to keep each board separate as I expect to move house in a couple of years! The layout is OO gauge.

If you glued and srewed your cross members to the board, should you come across one when fitting a point work out where it is on the cross member and cut the area needed with a boarding saw with two cuts and knock out the waste area ....... fit the point and your fine as the other part of the cross member if glued will not lose any strength holding the baseboard in place.
Saves having to hide surface mounted points.
