Step 1: Lathe

I'd missed the photo for the first step, first I drilled a 4.5cm hole with this, punched in a peace of lathed wood, glued them all, and lathed them into the shape of coke bottle.

Step 2: Cut

Cut off the two ends.

Step 3: Grind

Grind the ends into proper shapes.

Step 4: Add the Flaps

I used Purple Heart wood to make the flaps, cut three trench 120 degreed apart and glued them in place.

Step 5: Finishing

Sand the surface and used varnish to paint the serface.

    Wow, that's a really nice looking rocket! It kind of reminds me of the rocket that Wallace and Grommet built in their garage to fly to the moon to get some cheese! haha
