Introduction: Coconut Drinking Glass

In the summer I like to drink lemonade, but normal glasses are not cool.

A friend of me give me a coconut and I decided to make a drink glass of it.

This instructable will explain how to do this.

Step 1: What You Need:

  1. one coconut
  2. a drill
  3. a knife
  4. a marker
  5. a plastic cup
  6. a stanley knife and scissors
  7. a vile
  8. woodglue and a screw

Step 2: Drilling the Coconut

Drill a hole about 7 cm on the top of the coconut.

Do not trow away the cap.

Step 3: Empty the Coconut

Remove the flesh of the coconut with the knife.

Be carefull!

Step 4: Cutting the Cup

Put the cup in the coconut and use the marker to determine the size.

Use the stanley knife and scissors to cut the cup.

Press the cup into the coconut, do not glue the cup!

Step 5: Add Cap

Smoothen the bottom of the coconut with the vile

Drill a small hole and add glue.

Insert screw.

Step 6: Enjoy Your Drink!!
