Recycled items

  • Piece of leftover wood

Also needed

  • Glue gun and bullets
  • Dark paint
  • Mitre saw/handsaw
  • Sandpaper/hand sander


  1. Use the mitre saw to cut the wood in a scalene-type triangle.  Make sure it can stop the door.
  2. Use a hand sander or sandpaper to get rid of all rough edges.
