Cut your 1/2" plywood into two pieces. These should be 12"x14" and 12"x3". The smaller piece should have one long side cut at a 12 degree angle. NOTE - the larger board will have a margin that is larger on one end than the other.

Mark your 12"x14" board with a grid to indicate the centers of your kcup holes. The first horizontal line is 1.5" from the top and four more lines are at 2.5" intervals. The first vertical line is 1.5" from the side and three more lines are at 3" intervals. The intersections where the lines meet is where the holes will be centered. Use your drill and 2.5" hole saw bit to drill half way through each marked spot.

Using a brad nailer, attach the smaller board to the larger board. Note that the larger margin on the larger board should be at the bottom. The angled cut on the smaller board should be next to the larger board so that the face of the larger board should angle backwards.
