  1. Take your birchwood branch and mark appropriately sized intervals from front to back. **Example: We had seven people per table and 16-inch branches. Thus, we decided to make marks every two inches.
  2. Once you have measured and marked off your intervals, saw down half an inch on each line.2015_0731_WPD_DIY_Branch_Progress
