    I used a jigsaw mainly. I read a few other posts on here about measuring saw offsets and clamping off fences so that's what I did. Clamped a level and used it as a fence for each cut. Free handed the large radius curves with the jigsaw, and used a palm orbital sander to create the smaller radiuses. I actually used 3/4" MDF instead of any other kind of plywood as MDF uses actual instead of nominal dimensions, so that made your plans right on. I went to kinkos and had your plans printed to scale and then used 3M 77 glue to apply it to the MDF and then just used it as a template. Using the templates, as long as my cuts were near perfect, your spacing was dead on. I just tried to leave it on the snug side and then test fit, and sanded where needed.

It was sort of ironic, having the plans printed to use as templates was actually the most expensive part, so the project wasn't quite as cheap as I initially anticipated what I realized a 4x8 sheet of MDF was only $25, but I also had a blast building it and know I'll enjoy it a ton more having done so. To be perfectly honest, I started this project with about a 5% anticipation that it'd turn out, so I'm all smiles!
