wood wainscoting installation

Installing wood tongue in groove wainscoting in my kitchen. Came to an electrical outlet and will have to address two more. How do I make a nice rectangular hole for the outlet and faceplate?:confused:

Jigsaw would be the tool of choice. You need to execute good measuring skills to get the hole in the right place. If the hole is in the center of a board, you will need a 3/8" drilled hole to start the cut.

if there is space to hold the peice directly next to the outlet you can actually mark and scribe the outlet in place
