Step 2: Drilling Top Holes for Mallet Handles
Determine the location for the hole by placing the handle against the back of the head of the flamingo. Mark the spot for the hole. Make the hole slightly larger than the diameter of the mallet handle. We used a 7/8" drill bit as shown. Clamp the flamingo and drill straight in. Position the handle into the hole and shape the angle of the hole with the Dremel as shown.
