Hi! My name is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, we will be cutting out our kick plate piece. First I am going to measure out 20 1/2 inches on my piece of lumber. Next I am going to bring it over to my radial arm saw and make my cut. Next I am going to clean up one of the edges on the joiner. After that I've set my table saw at 2 1/2 inches and I am going to go ahead and rip my pieces and lastly, I am going to plane down by pieces to the correct thickness.
