Step 1

Cut the 3/4" plywood piece to size using the circular saw.  Measure and mark the points on the top and bottom of the plywood.  Draw lines between the points as shown in the diagram.  Use a jigsaw to cut out the mountain shape using the lines as guides.

Step 2

Mark the location of the dowels.  Drill a small pilot hole all the way through the plywood.  Then use the forstner bit to drill a hole the same diameter 3/8" into the plywood, with the drill bit centered on the small pilot hole.

Step 3

Cut the dowels (preferably with a compound miter saw but you can also cut with a jigsaw or circular saw - just clamp to a table first.  

Apply glue inside the forstner bit hole.  Insert the dowels.  Flip over and use the 2" self tapping screws to secure the dowels through the small pilot hole.
