What you will need:

  • Fiskars Power Tooth Softgrip Folding Saw
  • Birch log
  • Small hinges
  • 1 1/8″ Shank Forstner Drill Bit
  • Clamps
  • Sanding paper
  • Gorilla Glue Gel
  • Dremel Tool
  • Wood cutting blade

Instructions:

Cut two pieces of birch in 1.5″-2″ lengths each using Fiskars Power Tooth Softgrip Folding Saw.
This folding saw was made for cutting thick branches and is an essential in a garden shed, though its compact size and ease to use found a home in our craft closet. Fiskar’s POWER TOOTH®blade with razor-sharp, triple-ground teeth powers through wood faster, and it’s much easier to use than your regular saw for smaller projects.

On one piece, drill 1/2″ or so using a Forstner drill bit (this bit will give you a flat bottom)
On the other piece, drill a slit using your Dremel tool, about the depth of the cutting blade
Sand all ends of your birch log and glue the hinge. Once the glue is dry, nail the hinge in place – the nails are so small that having the hinge already glued on makes it easier to nail.
