Prepare and Cut Length
Measure, mark and cut an 8-inch section, lengthwise, from a piece of 1/2-inch sanded plywood using a circular saw. Note: Always wear eye protection when operating power tools, especially those which include blades.
Measure and Cut Height
Use measuring tape to measure to 84 inches, then mark with a pencil and carpenter's square. Next, cut the 8-inch piece to length with a circular saw.
Sand Rough Edges
Use an orbital sander with 120-grit sandpaper to smooth any rough edges or corners.
