Measure twice, cut once

Having marked out both sheets of ply the cutting out began. I used my trusty 15 year old Black & Decker jigsaw with a laminate cutting blade especially for ply and laminate sheets. I set it to top speed but the lowest pendulum setting for the cleanest cut. I made each cut as close to the pencil line as possible to avoid too much planing/sanding. Using my left thumb to guide the saw along and stop it wandering too close to the line.
