What's the point of relaxing with a drink when you have to constantly sit up straight to enjoy it? Enter the recliner straw! With a few dollars and a couple of hand tools, you can stay reclined while you sip your tasty beverage.

This instructable includes a 3' long flexible straw and a spill-proofing block to keep your bottle from tipping over while you're drinking.

Step 1: Parts & Tools


1. 2X6 lumber (at least 5 1/2" long)

2. 1/2" OD flexible plastic tubing


1. Hand drill with hole saw

2. Tape measure, pencil, ruler

3. Sand paper

4. Scissors

<p>neat, I bet its nice in the summer</p>
<p></p><p>I saw this at an antique store the other day. It's for Vodka but i'm sure anything would work. This might fix that suction problem you are having. A Drug store might have the I.V tubing. This picture is missing the drip but that might work better.</p>
<p>Whoops forgot image.</p>
<p>I was thinking maybe something along the lines of a hamster feeder, but this is much better. It's M*A*S*H merch too! Probably worth more than you paid for it.</p>
<p>I didn't buy it but I should have. You could put a camel bak mouthpiece on the end so that you can just bite down when you want a drink. The hampster feeder might taste metallic but it would be interesting to see.</p>
i have been doing this dor years :) its a great idea
Thanks for the tip guys. As you may have guessed, it's not so relaxing when you have to maintain pressure on the tube
<p>Yep a simple CVU directional check valve would mean you would have to strain a lot less. Just make sure you find something desposable and cheap. </p>
<p>The regulator used in IntraVenous fluid system can be used to help suction in long tubes. Once suction is completed same regulator can be 'closed' to prevent backflow. </p>
<p>Super lazy. </p>
