By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Cordless saw
Carpenter pencil  
Dewalt® Cordless radial saw
Measuring tape

Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm. The door had not been painted for over 30 years, the bottom of the door was damaged by a badly worn door sweep that allowed water into the bottom of the door. 

This post shows the three steps on how easy it is to cut a door with a cordless saw.

Step 1: Fig.1 is a Dewalt® 18-Volt 6-1/2 inch cordless circular saw. 
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the handyman preparing to cut the damaged door. Use a carpenter pencil and a measuring tape to mark the door cuts. The cuts needs to be the size of the trash can or smaller. Its easier to follow a line than to just pull the saw down the door and its good practice.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows that once the lines have been drawn, use the saw to cut the door. Follow the lines on the door. Let each piece drop to the cement for later disposal.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows the door is in the trash can.
