- picket field
- thick piece of cork
- xacto knife
- piece of nook bead or sq. dowel rod
- stain or paint
- B M/P inch drill bit
- wooden glue or screws
- brush or rag to use stain or paint
M. Start by creating the ledge in your cork to relaxation on. Measure and mark in your nook bead or dowel rod (both will work for this), your dimensions for the inside of the field and minimize with the noticed.
P. Measure down M inch contained in the field and use wooden glue or screws to connect the wooden to the within of the field. Repeat steps B and a couple of for all A sides of the field till you’ve created a ledge.
O. Once the ledge is full and dry (ought to take about quarter-hour with the wooden glue), measure and reduce the cork that would be the prime of the dock. Use an xacto knife and a straight edge for a pleasant even minimize. Place contained in the field to make sure that it matches. If not then you’ll be able to minimize down extra or sand down to suit. Make positive to make use of a pleasant thick cork that may help the load or a couple of units.
A. Next drill a gap behind the field together with your giant drill bit (that is the place you’ll feed cords out and in of).
H. To make the twine holes for the highest of the field, use a round form (like a bit of PVC pipe) to hint and minimize two semi circles within the cork, evenly spaced. Set this apart for the top.
S. Lastly stain or paint the wooden field. Here we used a pleasant darkish walnut stain to go with the lighter coloured cork. Get colourful with a shiny paint for this half or pure with a transparent varnish for those who favor.
Once the stain is dry, assemble your docking station by putting the cork again on the ledge and feeding your cords in by means of the again and up via the slots within the cork. Since the cork is simply resting on the ledge and doesn’t want glued in, you possibly can simply pull it as much as maneuver even bigger cords and cables by way of.
