Mark at 1.25 inch on both side of the wooden sticks
So the center space will be 3.5 inch. Mark on the all sticks. attach the wooden stick and apply
glue on it. So this will make a 3.5 inch size square frame.

Place the coconut shell on the frame and mark on four side of the shell. Now make a small cutting line on
the shell. Place the frame on the shell from the bottom. adjust the shell to fix on the frame tightly.
Apply little drops of glue on the shell to make the fixing stronger.
