You can find the tools need, supplies and instructions here. Below are my photos of the process.
|Drilling holes in 2 of the saucers took the longest amount of time.|
|Wrapping the twine. What a sticky mess!|
|Find the center of your cut poplar and drill a hole. Then squeeze some glue on it |
and line it up with the hole of you biggest saucer
|Thread your screw through|
|Now place a little glue to your washer and place it on the end of your dowel.|
I also placed a little glue on the saucer.
|Tighten the screw into the dowel.... but not too tight!|
|Using your pliers, screw the dowel screw halfway into the top of the rod. |
If I did this again I would move this step up a few. I think it would be easier
to screw the dowel screw in while the dowels not attached.
|Thread the 2nd saucer through the dowel screw, add a washer and tighten the 2nd dowel.|
Now you can see why it's so important to drill the holes correctly into your dowels.
I had to disassemble and redo some work after this.
|Finally, glue your smallest saucer on top|
