The following Word document:https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9NRwEqGVuzmMm1sNkZJdUhRREE/edit?usp=sharing contains top, front and side views of the TV Lift cabinet.&nbsp&nbsp It also contains a list of wood parts that should be cut.&nbsp Some of the parts are 3/4&quot plywood.&nbsp Some are 1/4&quot plywood and some are trim molding cuts.&nbsp&nbsp Click: file-&gt download to get a copy of this doc. There is also a plywood cut sheet with recommended cuts from each sheet of plywood to allow maximal efficiency of your plywood panels.&nbsp The sheets can be pre-ripped in your lumber yard or home center for easier carrying in your car.&nbsp&nbsp Of course all measurements should be double checked for your application and may be converted to metric. The documents are in Word so that you can easily modify them for your needs if your application or installation is different. When choosing your plywood sheets, be sure that they are not warped or bent.&nbsp Line each one up and sight it with your eye.&nbsp Reject the warped pieces.&nbsp Cutting large sheets of plywood can be tricky.&nbsp If you have access to a panel saw with a good plywood blade, you are golden.&nbsp If not, there are some tricks.&nbsp - The first is somewhat dangerous and you need a helper.&nbsp Set up your table saw outside with the fence and guards removed.&nbsp Mark your lines on the wood and pass the large sheet of plywood through the table saw blade with you pushing and your helper catching.&nbsp Go slowly and accurately. - The second method is to lay some 2 x 6 pieces on a smooth floor.&nbsp Lay your marked plywood on the floor and slowly cut your lines with a skill saw with a plywood blade installed. - Please double check ALL the measurements and dry fit your parts before drilling, nailing or gluing.&nbsp - You may find it useful to cut parts from the larger plywood sheets as the project progresses.&nbsp It gives you a better ability to check for errors.&nbsp The downside is that you have to setup the table saw each time.
