Introduction: Mango Stick
Mango is my favourite fruit.
Using a mango stick will let you eat a mango without getting your hand spoiled.
It is easy to assemble and it requires only two parts :
1- a 3 cm. (1 1/4") stanless steel wood screw
2- a 10 X 0.8 cm. (4 X 0.4 ") plastic or wood stick.
The tools you need :
- a drill
- metal saw, grinder or clipper
-two part epoxy
