1 - Reduce stock to finished dimensions following the above directions.

5 - Locate a point 3/4 inch from one end on a center line drawn lengthwise of the stock and bore hole with 3/8 inch bit. Bore from one side until the point of the bit comes through, then turn the board and finish from the other side. This prevents splitting of the wood around the hole. Fig. 9, Fig. 10.
