step two

Arrange the bats on the plywood and cut plywood to fit. Mark where tool cut the ends off 3 or so bats to make room for the starfish. Cut the bats on the marked line.

step three

Stain your plywood and strips of wood for the frame to a stain of your liking. A darker stain was used here. After the stain dries, dry brush white paint onto your stained plywood. Allow the stain to show through to show the texture of the wood.
