Mark the Sides

If the bench has sides on it, continue the pencil line from the top, down onto each side, using a straight edge.

Cut the Bench

Put on protective eyewear and use a jigsaw to carefully cut the bench in half. Make sure the blade continues to follow the pencil line all the way across.

Mark Bench Position

Using a pencil and a level, draw a line on the wall across the top side of cut edge of the bench.
