Let's start - step by step
Cut the wood to size
Firstly, measure out the wood to 25cm x 25cm. Then using a pencil draw diagonals to find the center point. The cut the wood to size using a jigsaw. Once it is cut sand down the edges with a multi-sander for a smooth finish.
Next using a cordless drill/driver and a 32mm Forstner drill bit in second gear, drill a hole through the center point. Make sure to drill all the way through to the wooden block underneath.
Mark a hole for the wine glasses
What you need: Pencil, Ruler
Measure 7cm in from each corner and mark the holes for each wine glass – the hole size will vary depending on the size of the stem of the wine glasses.
Drill the holes
What you need: Cordless drill/driver with matching bit, Forstner drill bit 12-15mm
Drill the holes for the glasses using a cordless drill/driver and a 12-15 mm Forstner drill bit.
Cut the holes for the wine glasses
In order for the glasses to hang in the holes, slits need to be cut. The slits are to be drawn parallel to the diagonal lines. Draw lines 5mm parallel to each diagonal line. Next saw the slits wth a jigsaw or a NanoBlade saw and cut along the new lines. Make sure to work more slowly as you reach the end of the slot so that you stop inside the hole.
Sand down the edges
What you need: multi-sander, screw clamps, work gloves, protective goggles, face mask
Sand the edges of the slits using a multi-sander or the sanding attachment on a multi-function tool to achieve a smooth finish.
Adding the finishing touches
What you need: Cordless glue gun
Now to decorate your wine holder! Use a hot glue gun to glue fabric, textile tape, cork or pebbles to your wine holder to make it more personalised. Now you're ready to enjoy the sun!
