Cutting into Wood

Wide baseboards and wooden paneling provide sturdy support for boxes. Bore starter holes at each corner of the outline. Bore a second set of holes for the ears at the top and bottom of the box. Cut from hole to hole with a keyhole saw or jigsaw. If you use a keyhole saw, make short strokes so you don't jab the tip of the saw into the other side of the wall. Install a remodel box with flanges, like the one shown. Fasten the flanges to the baseboard with No. 6 wood screws.
