Following up on your earlier post Gordon, I found an old thread, and several people did mention using a Dremel, so I think I'll try it first. Thanks for the tip.

Now I just have to figure out the door for the new opening in the closet. Scamp no longer sells the oak-look panels, so I have to decide whether to look for a cast-off, make one and and paint all the doors to match, or cannibalize the porta-potty door and install the pull-out drawer I have always wanted there...

Google Oscilliating Multi-tool, which I believe was originally made by Fein Tools, but is now made by multiple tool makers....even Harbor Freight. This works great, especially when used in conjunction with a vacuum cleaner to collect the dust as it is being produced.

cutting my hole

I have a good jigsaw I can control it so that will be what I use! I have had dremels and such play hopscotch with me on stuff before! I have already used it for a fiberglass cutting project!

plastic cabinents

Just FYI -

If you use a jigsaw and you are cutting from the gelcoat side, there is a somewhat special blade that you might look for and use. My ACE Hardware guy recommended one to me.

Looking at the tooth orientation, you will notice that blade cuts on the down-stroke instead of the up-stroke that some wood-cutting jigsaw blades use. I'm not sure about the tooth orientation on metal-cutting blades.

I was told that any blade that cuts on the up-stroke can potentially lift and chip out larger areas of gelcoat on either side of the cut line.

Just possible food for thought. As always, YMMV.

Good luck!

When I installed flush mounted speakers in the upper rear cabinet of my Casita I used a high speed cutter bit on the dremel to cut the fiberglass. I used something similar to the #194 and it worked well but if I were buying the bit new I would consider the #115 as well.
