That said, let's get right into the next step: cutting down the 4'x8' plywood sheets into more manageable sizes. Shown below is a 'cut list' diagram made in SketchUp showing all of the pieces I need for the project. As you can see, 2 sheets of plywood are plenty for this project (I actually bought 3 sheets to be on the safe side, since they were on sale). There may be more efficient ways to lay out the cuts, but this seems satisfactory for me.

|Sacrificial pieces of wood are used to raise the plywood so that it may be cut.|
|A simple method to make accurate and consistent measurements.|
|Different saw blades excel at different tasks.|
|The extendable cutting guide came in handy for these long cuts.|
|Now I know for next time which side to face up when cutting.|
With that, I transformed two large pieces of plywood into several smaller pieces (shown below) which I will be able finish up using the workbench.
