Till you come to the most notable of the opening cut across the lines using a reciprocating noticed. Measure the height of the oven. If it is the sam-e, cut the opening from the other side of to intersect the lines and eliminate the parts from every side. Prolong the line as significantly as you require to make the large enough in the event the oven is taller.
