Step 1: Prepare the Manson Jars.
This step is dangerous, it's difficult to cut the metal of the lid. so be carefull when you do this.
Drill a first hole and then enlarge it.
Drill 4 little holes.

Step 2: Prepare the Wood House.
1 - cut the wood. you are free to chose your shape and your size.
2 - shape the wood to get a house shape. And important ! you have to keep the rests.
3 - drill 3 holes ( the size must be inferior as the mason jar lid hole made on step 1 )
4 - screw the lid on the wood house shape. use some mails to place the lid metal as close as possible of the wood.
5 - screw the house shape on the pedestal.
6 - use the rest of wood to strengthen the assembly.
Step 3: Details
