My son began making and selling the survival braclets. He needed displays for the braclets in the gun stores who are carrying his bands. Some stores want the 2 peg and some want the 4 peg display. The first display I made was the 4 peg and has inlays of the parachute cord on the column…...that’s a bit of work so the next one was a 2 peg and was a little more simple. Drilling the pegs at a 6 degree angle proved a little challenging but doable. If you have a good mousetrap for doing this….I’m all ears!! Finish is rattle can Deft Semi-Gloss. Thanks for looking!

I usually cut a “guide block” at the desired angle and use it for a drill guide.

Nice effort for your son – well done!

If you have a bunch of these to do and want super accurate and easy angles to drill, do this:

cut a “wedge” a tad over the size of your piece and at the angle you want the holes drilled and attach a small strip at the bottom to hold the piece level.

Put the piece on the wedge, and use your drill press to drill all the holes – easy!
