Mark up the wood by using Magic Marker and the T-square to scribe a line the entire length of the 2″ x 8″ at 1 1/2″ from the edge of wood. Starting from one the wood edge, mark the line of Magic Marker in every 10 1/2″. You can use the mark as the back of a 3/4″ circle. You can start at the Magic Marker line to make parallel scribes from each circle’s side to the opposite of wood edge. Use a dot to mark the center of the circles. Double check the measurements. Drill out the circles by using the 1/2″ electric drill with the 3/4″ wood bit. Just drill through the each circle in the center. Cut out the slots by using sawcut the parallel lines from the edge of wood back to the 3/4″ hole making the slots.
