I'm gonna play father role here, and suggest before saw's are pulled out and cuts made you spend a little time researching before you get to where you are...LOL. Hopefully you haven't cut something you shouldn't have

This is what i used, and it made it a cinch! Good luck!

this is a great template, I have done a few. you may have to do some minor trimming to get them to fit just right. but this write up is a great start. a dremmel works great for fine tuning, good luck

The pics in that thread are what I used too. They are right on the money. I used a rotozip with a straight plunge router bit on it, worked great. Keep in mind there are a few areas that depth control IS important.

Good Luck
