Measure the exact dimensions you want your latex foam to be cut to using the tape measure.
Draw the dimensions on the latex foam with a Sharpie. Use the yardstick as a straight edge to mark off where the cuts need to be made.
Cut the piece of foam. Place the foam on a sturdy counter or table, and hang the side you plan to cut over the edge and away from the table or countertop surface. Carefully cut the foam with the electric knife, slowly sawing up and down along the lines of measurement.
Things You Will Need
- Tape measure
- Yard stick
- Electric knife
- If you are using the latex foam as a mattress pad, make your measurements a quarter-inch shorter on each side so that the sheets will fit over the additional padding.
- A turkey carving knife will work just as well as a professional electric knife.
