2. Drill + small drill bit + circular drill bit
3. Hemp twine
4. Flat-head screwdriver
5. Coconut scrap or other item
Step 1: Opening the Coconut
Using the circular bit in your drill, pick a spot on the coconut and cut a hole. Make sure to have the "face" of the coconut pointed upwards because that will be where your string comes out.
Once your hole is made, use the flat-head screwdriver to remove the meat. I find that using the screwdriver to score the meat before prying the meat out, makes everything work better. Use a thrust and twist technique to work small chucks of coconut loose. Periodically you will need to shake the chunks out.
Step 2: Drain Holes
Step 3: Add the String
At the end of the twine inside the coconut, knot/attach a fragment of coconut, or other item. This will keep the coconut on the twine when you hang it.
Trim the twine at the end of your knot.
