Circular Saw
Cut the shelf with the circular saw to the correct length. Use the laser line generator as a guide for ease of cutting. Mark the line with a square first. When the guard of a saw opens as you cut a piece of timber you will always expose the blade. With the cordless saw the fear of cutting through the power cord is removed so you will feel a lot more comfortable positioning yourself to cut. You would normally have to throw the power cord over your shoulder to keep it out of the way. You have to love cordless technology!

Mark and cut the brackets to the desired shape with the Jigsaw. This jigsaw with the 4-stage orbital cutting settings will make a professional cut without forcing the saw through the timber.

Mark the centre of the 3 holes and set the attachment to the desired radius. Cut the holes. Paint the pot shelf and once it has dried, attach it to the wall.
