Table Centerpiece




About: I love to build DIY wood projects.

I love how this table centerpiece turned out. This flower center piece is designed for bottles that are 7 1/2" tall. We bought Fever-Tree premium ginger ale drink and used the empty bottles for this project. I burned the wood using propane torch to give it that texture look and than stained it with Minwax gray color.

Step 1: Burning Wood With Torch

Take 1x4 board and using the Propane Torch burn the wood until its completely black. Once the wood in burned on both sides, take Drill with Nyalox Flap Brushe and take off the burnt top layer. If you prefer the wood to look lighter than brush more layers.

Step 2: Cutting Boards

Now cut the boards at 45 degrees to provided dimensions in the cut list. Also, cut a board that's 22 1/2" long and rip it at 45 degrees so that bottom is 3" wide. This board is for the bottles to sit on.

Step 3: Drilling Holes

Take the top board and using Milwaukee 1 1/4" hole saw bit, drill 7 holes 3" apart.

Step 4: Staining

Using Minwax classic gray 271 stain the boards on all sides and wipe it off with a clean cloth.

Step 5: Assembling Everything Together

Once everything is stained, place the boards on a flat surface (may use claps to hold it together) and attach it using Wood Glue and Nail Gun.

Step 6: Insert Bottles and Flowers

Take the Fever-Tree premium ginger ale drink and insert the empty bottles for flowers. These bottles are 7 1/2" tall. You're done

    It's beautiful! I love the finish and the way the recycled bottles fit and almost seem to float in the center. :)
