Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Step 1

Begin by laying out your design on your craft wood material. You can either trace a design or adhere it in place with spray glue as we did with the tree stencil (provided in this project).

STEP 2

Step 2

Using your Moto-Saw and the Side Cutting Blade, cut along your template. You may find it easier to clamp your plywood to your workbench and cut the piece using the Moto-Saw in the handheld position. Run your tool at a speed setting of 6 for this application. Tip: Remember to let the speed of the tool do the work and do not force the blade through the plywood.

STEP 3

Step 3

Add any finishing touches and paint as desired. Use a hoe or a shovel to create a divot for your stake and plant it firmly into place.
