About: I am 14 years old and I live in Waco Texas,I like making things out of wood and fixing things!and nature photography!and like the out doors I also love fishing, I love bass fishing!

This is a cool project I made that you can put on your desk or show it to your friends and see if they can figure out how you did it.

Step 1: Cut

Cut three slots out

Step 2: Drilling

Boil some water and put one end in for about 10 minutes and then clamp it on the vise and let it dry and then get a long drill bit and drill the holes.

Step 3: Sanding

Sand it in the groves

Step 4: Putting the Nail in

Put the nail in the hole and then put it back in the boiling water and let the wood go back out

Step 5: Cut

Cut the side off

Step 6: Your Done

And that's it sand it a little more and it's finished

    I guess I am not very smart. What exactly does "Boil some water and put one end in for about 10 minutes and then clamp it on the vise and let it dry" really mean? Picture show the end piece of wood gone but instructions say to cut 3 notches. Little help here please.

    That end piece isn't really gone, it's just smooshed down. After the slots are cut, that end where the high area appears to be missing is soaked in boiling water, then that high part is clamped in the vise. With the wood softened by the boiling water, you can tighten the vise and squish the high area down. Let it in the vise until it dries and re-hardens, and you can take it out of the vise, keeping that squished-down shape! Drill the holes and insert the nail, then re-soak the squished end in boiling water to let the squished part expand back to its original shape.

    It seems you forgot step 0 (somewhere in between your step 1): After making the cut: boil one end and press it in the vise. Nobody will understand your instructions without that.

    He did tell how - "Boil some water and put one end in for about 10 minutes and then clamp it on the vise and let it dry"

    Neat trick!
