- Materials: Two pieces of wood (about 1″ x 3.75″ x 1/8″ each) Thin sheet metal (about 2″ x 3.75″) Two #8 machine screw lock nuts Two #8 machine screws, 3/4″ long Ten #8 machine screw washers Glue that is able to bond wood to metal (not pictured) Wood stain (optional) Polyurethane (optional)
- Tools: Drill and bit set Tin snips Sand paper/sanding block Small binder clamps Pencil Ruler
- Source Tips: Paint stir sticks are a good size to be used for the wood pieces. These are generally free at the paint section of most hardware stores. For the sheet metal, I used a baking sheet that I found at dollar tree for $1. This yields about 13″ x 9″ of metal.
