Line up  the bottom piece and your scrap board for the side  brace, and mark the width of the bottom piece on the scrap board.

Using a straight edge, extend the line across the scrap board.

Grab your saw, and chop off the first side edge.

For the second side, i just traced the side of the first cut side brace.
