Step 1: Prepare the Base
The next thing you'll want to do is mark out the positions where each of the candle holders will be placed. With a 10 inch piece of wood we were able to place each candle holder at 1 inch intervals across the base. Use a ruler and pen and mark it up right.
Step 2: Cut Holes in the Base
Clamp down the wood base and begin drilling out each of the holes. Make sure you don't drill too deep. I put a piece of tape on the bit I was using so I could clearly see how deep I was going. Once I was done I passed the base on to my girlfriend to put the candle holders in place.
