A panel cutter allows exhibit designers and builders to cut sheet materials accurately in the least amount of time possible.

Commercial panel cutters can be expensive and out of the price range for many museums.

This leaflet provides step-by-step instructions for building a custom panel cutter in-house. Diagrams and photographs guide each step and provide useful visuals for builders.
