I would get a gas chainsaw.  I bought a refurbed Poulan Pro 4218 (42cc and 18" bar) for around $100 off Ebay a couple years ago and it's already paid for itself.  It's been a decent little saw for wha...

You don't have to worry about the plywood panels moving much but the frames will to some extent.  I'd leave some room.

Great looking work!  Will the little ones hold ice cream?  They look like sundae dishes to me.

Superglue is one method.  Shellac or lacquer might work too with reasonable drying times.  I haven't done a lot with mulberry but don't remember any particular issues.
