Thanks for the ideas....drob.. i think i am going to have to go with yours. ...i actually thought about doing it like Mack said, but did not like the idea of having the paper on there while i tried to saw, initially...I had to give the saw back too, so i couldnt try it.

the bird head is from a 2x4 stud, so it should be plenty thick to attach a table leg or dowel

Back in MY day, we didn't have a bunch of buttons. All we had was a STICK, and one button... And we LIKED IT!

Knowing the proper order definitely qualifies you as a game-nerd
