Check the How-To library in big box stores, there should be something there.

Try You Tube for videos.
You can cut the metal using a composite blade in any saw or tin snips.
If you use a chop saw, remove the bag.

thanks for replies.... havent had any real luck at big box stores with the books... bbq islands seem to require notched type cuts to fit different directions. I also want to have a cantilever bar attached so need to know how to do that.. anyway, i will keep searching

Once you get into load bearing situations, you'll need get into load bearing metal, not just the partition guage for boxes.
