I'd missed the photo for the first step, first I drilled a 4.5cm hole with this, punched in a peace of lathed wood, glued them all, and lathed them into the shape of coke bottle.

Step 2: Cut

I used Purple Heart wood to make the flaps, cut three trench 120 degreed apart and glued them in place.

Wow, that's a really nice looking rocket! It kind of reminds me of the rocket that Wallace and Grommet built in their garage to fly to the moon to get some cheese! haha
