MEASURE AND MARK

Measure and mark cuts on the plywood according to the below cut list. 


  • To get a symmetrical shape, fold a large sheet of paper in half and draw half of the shape along the fold (draw so your shape is 8 inches wide and 21 inches tall along fold). 
  • Cut out the shape and unfold to create template (shape should now be 16 x 21 inches). 
  • Trace template onto plywood.
