Make cabinet hole bigger for warming drawer


I am a very inexperienced DIY'er. A cabinet man put a rectangular hole in the front of an existing cabinet drawer for a warming drawer to be installed. The warming drawer arrived and the hole is not quite big enough. It needs to be about 1/2 inch wider. How can I make the hole bigger without having to get the cabinet guy back out here to charge more money? Thanks in advance for your help.

First--a picture if you could--second---is this a 'show' cut or is it hidden when the warming drawer is installed?

What tools do you own or can borrow?

1) 1/2" on one side, or 1/4" on each side?
2) How high?
3) Particle board, real wood, or something else?
........A picture would be worth a thousand words
