Christmas present prototype. This is a pretty easy little build, now that it’s standing I can build a few more. I will add more photos after finishing…litterally.

Very sleek.

Is it necessary to use a drill press for one of these (I assume with a forstner bit)? I would think its tough getting that angle with a hand drill.

Nice work.

I used my shop smith drill press with a 1 1/4” forstner bit. It has a tilting table so that made it pretty easy. I have seen designs on these just drilling the hole at 90. I think they use at least a 1 1/2” bit when doing it that way.

I drill the hole by hand. No forstener bit, i use the flat wood drill piece whatever it is called. Just eyeball it around 45 degrees. Works every time. The bottom angle i made around 40 degrees i think.

Nice, I made about 40 of them for this Christmas season, everyone just loves them, they make for quick easy, and very much appreicated gifts. I find people like them best when I laminate several pieces of various colours of wood. Good job on it.

I tell people that they are easy to make. All you need is a table saw, a miter gauge, a rip blade, a crosscut blade, a drill press, a forstner bit and a router to get started. Then all you need is three grits of sandpaper and a finish of your choice to wrap it up!
