Welcome back to Wood ‘n’ Stuff. Today we’re gonna make a bottle cap tambourine. And
your mama always told you drinking beer would get you nowhere she was wrong was like really really
wrong okay. the click the link in the description to
download my full sized drawings for free I’ll define these inside radii with a one and a quarter Forstner bit Start by marking the four center points with a one sixteenth inch drill bit. it let’s reduce the drill press speed to 580 RPM I don’t usually drink canned beer. But when I do I make sure it’s a good one. Don’t drink while using power tools or other sharp objects unless you enjoy screaming Gettin’ there. Now it looks like it’s time to have some fun Hmm, let’s see here: Aw man! I drilled as deep as I could with this bit. Then I switched to a longer bit in a hand drill to finish the holes. Ah, let’s see. We need 4, 8 times, let’s say, 4. So we need 32 bottle caps. Let’s see what we have here. Let’s see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 6, 7, 8… Hm, how
convenient, we only have 31 caps. We’re back in business! And now to make the jingles, also known as “zils” (Z.I.L.S.), I’m going to flatten some bottles caps. I won’t flatten them completely; I’m gonna
leave a little depth and texture to them. Start a hole in the center of each. I’ll now drill a hole in each cap that’s about twice as big as the wire I’m gonna use. Place caps steel to steel, with the rubber seals on the outside. Assemble with two pairs of jingles per opening. I plugged the ends with small wooden dowels then used the CA glue and backing soda
trick as a filler. Guess what? We’re almost at 1000 subscribers. You know what that means! That means soon I’m going to be giving away some goodies! And I won’t just give away one thing. Probably not just two. Probably going to be three different items I might give away the whole damn shop! So stick around ’cause that’s coming up soon. I appreciate all of you who you take the time to watch my videos and who comment and who have subscribed and shared videos and all that good stuff. So thank you very much. And get out there
in your shop, make something cool and until next time thanks for watching. I mean, I’m talking like wrong, like really, really wrong. Seriously.
