I have used a Dremel with a cutoff wheel & it's ok but makes me a little nervous. One slip & you got problems & it's messy. Then I tried a Hot Knife. Like a soldering iron with a Xacto blade. Cuts FG like butter & makes great rounded corners.

Method

I start by using masking tape to help define my cut lines. The I use a dremel cut off wheel and cut the opening close but not to the tape lines. Then I finish up with emery boards and needle files for the final lines. You can have all of your door openings cut out in a few hours.

Doors

I use the Diamond Wheels for the Dremel and cut close but not all the way. These work better than the Cut Off Wheels and will NOT Break ! I then Finish with a Drum Sander on my Dremel to finish the cut outs.
