How to Easily Cut Thin Brick
June 5, 2019
When doing a Brickwebb project, you will likely come across some obstacles that you need to cut around such as outlets, thermostats, windows, air vents, etc. You’ll also need to cut thin brick at the edge of your wall or floor. You can easily cut your thin brick using a hand tile cutter.
First, hold up your Brickwebb to the item that needs to be cut around. Identify which bricks and how many will need to be cut in order to work around the obstacle. Make a mark in pencil on the bricks where they will need to be cut. (Remember to measure twice and cut once)
If bricks in the center of a Brickwebb sheet will need to be cut, remove the affected bricks and cut out the webbing with a box cutter or other sharp knife. You can easily cut the mesh with a box cutter or other sharp knife.
Use a hand held tile cutter to cut thin brick where you marked it. You can place the brick on an old piece of wood that you don't mind scoring. Be sure to wear safety goggles while cutting brick. When cutting a sheet of bricks for an edge, cut right through the webbing with the bricks still attached. The staggered bricks make it easy to cut a straight edge for your sheet.
