Hi, this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip I'll be showing you how to layout and cut our shelf. Our shelf section is going to come out of the corner of the sheet of plywood. So the first step is to transfer all of our measurements to our plywood. Once my shelf has been laid out, I'm ready to cut it out. For this task I will be using a jigsaw and a board as a guide so I can make a straight cut. Now that the first cut has been made go ahead and continue with the same procedures for the rest of you shelf. Once the shelf has been cut out you'll want to clean up any edges that are not cut good enough.
