Step 1: Mark the board to be cut

At some point you will need to cut a board down in width to fit either the top or bottom of your wall. The first step is to align the board how you want it to fit. Mark either end of the board with a pencil where the cuts need to be made.

Step 3: Cut along the line

Using the cutting tool you feel most comfortable with, cut along the line you just drew. The easiest tool to cut along the length of a board is a jig saw. It is much easier and more accurate that any other option.
