This project is one of the easiest I've ever developed. It can easily be done in under an hour, from start to finish. So satisfying!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is a quick and easy one. The only potentially tricky part is using the drill (if that's something you're not used to doing), but you have to drill exactly one hole, so take a deep breath, practice on some scrap wood, and go for it!
