Gift cup holder – “coffee”

Gift cup holder - It happens that you do not know what to give for a holiday to a person dear to you. Here I am with my son, thinking about what to give to our beloved grandmother. Due to the fact that she is very fond of drinking strong coffee in the morning, we thought about making her a stand for a coffee pot and a cup. It is also suitable as a kind of coaster for beer lovers.

I prepared pieces of plywood in advance by cutting them into small rectangles. Plywood needs to be sanded and its ends must be processed. It is necessary to work with fine-grained sandpaper. Small wooden planks will also work. You can even buy ready-made wooden coasters. Preparation of plywood can be done using a renovator which has in its kit a grinding attachment for emery.

This is a tiger depiction based on African motives. If you look closely, you will notice the silhouettes of the people in this picture – hunters. Another picture was drawn by my child.

To do this, on the back of the paper, you need to apply a strip with the longitudinal side of the pencil using a charcoal pencil, trying to use the entire image. For ease of use, the paper must be secured with a paper holder or tape.

I used an electric burner I made earlier, which has been working great for several years now. Also, for him I have prepared tips of various shapes and sizes. We need the sharpest tip, or we can sharpen it with emery.

Any tree has a direction of fibers, which in the process of work interfere a little. Therefore, there is no need to rush with burning. In addition, it is almost impossible to fix mistakes after burning wood.
