blade for miter saw

Can someone give some advice for a blade to cut engineered cherry (or what I'm calling Engineered cherry) this isn't right off the planer wood it has layers inside of it for a Rigid 12" Compound Miter saw.

I had a massive Entertainment center that was broken down into it's parts. It's laying up against our wall in the garage, and I want to make a cabinet or two from it. I have the blade that came with it still on, and really don't want to chip the edges when cutting.

thanx

You likely want a blade specifically for engineered flooring. The Freud D1296L is one. There are many others. Cutting slow is the key, and you may still get some chipping on the back side of the cuts. If you are talking about melamine, that's a different animal. Freud LU80R012 would be an example of that. Again, there are many others.

If you're really talking about melamine, just search google for 12" melamine blade and you will have a lot of options to choose from.
