Hey PS.....I just found out that you can use a door hanger instead of cutting a hole in wood. They are the decorative things you hang over a door knob and craft stores sometimes sell them. Hope it helps! Mark

Use the wood door hangers instead of sawing a hole in the wood. You can get them at most craft stores. Hope you make some!
