To make a humbler, you need two lengths of wood, some bolts and wing nuts, a saw, a pen, sandpaper, paint, and a quality varnish. Draw the pattern you?re using onto the wood, considering the contours you?ll need for a good fit, including the gap. Drill holes in either end of both pieces so the bolt can fit through. Sand down the wood well so it is very smooth. After you?ve sanded, paint it your desired color and apply your finish. Thread the nuts through the holes and use the wing nuts to tighten it.
