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.
Step 3: Install the Candle Holders
In case I haven't mentioned, the candle holders are 9 3/8" bolts. There are eight 3" bolts and one 4" bolt that goes in the center. Each one is then capped with a 3/8" hex nut that is threaded on and then glued in place. She glued the 9 bolts in place and then the hex nuts.
That's pretty much it! If you follow these instructions you'll have a complete menorah in no time. I think the entire project took less than an hour.
