Cut the Beadboard

Use a circular saw to cut the beadboard to size. To make cut-outs for outlets and switches, use a pencil to mark the exact shape of the cut out. Drill holes in two opposing corners with a large (3/8" or 1/2") bit. Then drop in the blade of a jig saw into one of the holes then cut out the rest of the opening.
