 Ah yes! very good ideas! I like the 'many holes in wood approach' for 
 now just to keep clutter down.

 Any ideas for making sure that the contacts do not get pulled out of 
 the tin? Maybe a bolt of some kind?

 Also, if I make that fake wood battery to go in the Ben, what material 
 could I use for the flat contacts? Would I just solder the wire onto the 
 metal from behind?
