Materials and tools:
- a wooden pole with a diameter of 30 mm
- a wooden pole with a diameter of 16 mm
- a wooden pole with a diameter of 6 mm
- stationery knife
- a drill with a drill diameter of 16 mm and 6
- 4 nail length of about 50 mm
- a little cement mixture
- spatula or trowel
- masking tape
- plastic container
- carpenter’s glue
- paint brush
- mineral oil
How to make a stand from wood with your own hands
The thick pole would be the “trunk” of our stand. Cut off 30 mm pole length of about 45 cm branches of a tree-stands are made of medium poles, pre-cut into lengths of about 20 cm.
Billet carefully apply the sandpaper.
From one of the thick ends of the poles stick 2.5 cm and scribe a mark with a pencil. This end will be the top of the trunk. Then put two marks at a distance of 12 cm from each other. Use a drill and a 16mm drill bit in the drill stem through holes.
Note: the middle hole should be perpendicular to the extreme.
So cups do not fall with the “twigs” at the ends need to install the limiters. For this closer to the ends of each branch, you drill a blind hole with a diameter of 6 mm. Pre-sawed 6 mm pole into segments with a length of about 2 cm.
Try all the parts and then disassemble the structure.
In the lower edge of the thickest poles need to hammer four nails crosswise.
Mix cement and pour the mixture into a plastic container with a diameter of about 20 cm.
Tip: the mixture should fill the bowl about 2-2,5 see
Insert the Central axis of the stand nails down so that they were within the cement mixture. Align a rail and fasten it in an upright position using masking tape. Allow the mixture to harden within 48 hours.
Remove the stand from the container, treat the concrete Foundation with sandpaper.
Insert the branches into the holes, put them on a joiner’s glue. Make sure that the holes for the stoppers facing up.
Set the stops, dropping into each hole with a little glue.
Allow the glue to dry.
Cover all wooden parts of mineral oil, thus the tree will look better and last longer.
Stand ready, left to hang at her Cup.
