Hi, this is Jon and in this clip we will be laying out our base plate and performing the rough cuts. For our base piece we're going to need the final measurements of 6 inches by 48 inches. Now before we lay it out on our board, there's a couple of things we need to look at. The end of this board has a small split in it, so we're going to have to cut that off before we take our measurements of 48 inches long. Additionally we have a corner on one of the edges that have been chipped off, and we're also going to want to take that off before we start our measurements. Once we're all set and we've marked off the area that we need to cut off, we can go ahead and make our first cut. And then we're ready for our second cut at exactly 48 inches. Now that our coat rack has been cut to the overall length, we're ready to move forward.
