Make sure your cabinet is 15" or narrower. Use the stud finder and mark 2 studs. Mark where you plan to cut. Just push the saw through the wall. Start in the middle and cut to the stud line. Don't push the saw too far through and watch for wires. Now just trace the lines. Go slow and be precise. Good luck, its easy.

I think I'd add to that Make a SMALL hole in the stud bay. Put your hand in, or inspect for wires THEN start sawing.
