  • @hugo7 yeah I cut mine with a jigsaw as the left side was butting up to an angled wall. I worried alot about not making a clean cut but it was totally fine with a guide clamped on to give me a straight finish. The most import thing was finding the right blade with enough teeth and you also want them cutting on the down stroke so the wood doesn't splinter on the way up. Think you'll be okay as the side you cut can go against the fall to hide any imperfections. If you really mess up then can always put a baton of wood at the back, I'm still thinking of adding this on mine just to tart it up.

  • Thanks for the jigsaw advice. I always struggle to make a neat job with them and often end up doing lots of little cuts in then filing or chiselling them out.

    Currently still torn between one of these and ply + mdf + replaceable hardboard thin sheet. In part because it'll leave me with some useful bits of wood left over, but also price. Then again yours looks so smart.

    Long term I'm gonna do this on 3 sides as it's taking up the full width. So it'll have to be a bit short to slide into place.
