How to achieve what I want in a small project
Our surplus store occasionally has paint stirrers on sale for very little. We always buy them but can never think of a project except to stir paint! This time though I have thought of one. The stirrers are 14" long. I want to use them to transfer the doorway height markings we have made of our two grandchildren, onto; so each child can have their own and in a very manageable way. To do this I want to fasten the appropriate # of paint stirrers together so they are hinged. Like old fashioned wooden tape measures were if any of you can remember seeing one of those. I know there have to be holes drilled and some kind of a fastener to hold each stirrer to its: "predecessor" and "follower". These not only have to be hinged but with a sort of flat connector that will allow for a neat folding appearance. Hope this is not too confusing.
