can you cut plaster? Yes, there are times when you need to cut a hole in a plaster wall. I will warn you that cutting through nearly 1″ thick plaster is not without its messes. It is a dusty job and you can't always be sure to avoid all the crumbling plaster, but with the right techniques, you can avoid most mishaps.
Also to know is, is plaster of Paris dangerous to use?

When was asbestos used in plaster walls?
Most types of asbestos-containing plaster were manufactured between 1942 and 1974. If your house was built or renovated during that time, it's a good idea to have it tested. That said, asbestos was used in stucco and drywall as early as 1910, and use continued at a slower rate until at least the early 1980's.
