I'm getting ready to build a 49" L x 25" W x 36" H terrarium stand (and possibly a custom sliding glass front terarrium of roughly the same size to go ontop of it for my plants and anole) but for now I'm only thinking of the stand.
I want to cut a hole in the front of the stand and put a hinged door on it. I am using 3/4" Melamine coated board to build the stand. I have a power drill with various sized hole saws and a hand held jig saw to cut with.
My idea is that I can trace my door opening with a T square and drill 3/4" holes in each corner of the opening and connect the holes with the jig saw. Is this a good way to do it is there a better way to go about making the opening?
