Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Begin
I first drew the shape of the bottle on the peace of wood. than i flipped the peace around and mark out the spot that will be milled away later
Step 2: Mill Out the Notch
I used my router to mill a notch on the back of the board. You can skip this step but than you will have 2 screws sticking out the back of the bottle .
Step 3: Saw Out the Shape
I used a jigsaw to saw out the shape of the bottle . when you did the last step correct you should have a peace missing on the back of the wood (pic. 4)
Step 4: Shaping and Install the Screws
For this step i used a rasp file and some sand paper ( 80 grid )to get the rough shape of the bottle. after that you can clean it up with 120 grid sand paper.
Than you can install the screws as shown on pic. 5
Step 5: Add the Magnet
I actually forgot about this step ,so i had to go back and do this after i had the first lair of paint on the peace.
Al you have to do for this step is make a hole and glue the magnet in . Just make sure you don`t forget it :(
Step 6: Paint and Lacquer
To paint the bottle i used acrylic paint in the colors : black , red and white
first i painted the base and than i spend 45 min. to get the logo right.
Than just apply a finish (i used clear lacquer ) and open a cold one.
