Step 8. Start Making Your Tree
It’s now time to start making your tree. Ranging from 80mm to 1100mm, measure up the branches with your tape measure and mark the cutting lines. For this tree, we created 35 cuts of timber in total.
Step 9. Create the Tree Trunk and Branches
Eighteen pieces were cut to a length of 100mm to create the tree trunk. For the branches, we used eight lengths ranging from 80mm-1100mm. You’ll need to cut three pieces of each size (1100mm, 950mm, 750mm, 500mm, 300mm, 200mm, 150mm, 80mm).
Step 10. Cut to Size
Fix the timber into place using your clamp. Using the circular saw, cut your pieces of timber to each of the sizes.
Step 11. Get Drilling
Using a spade bit with a larger diameter than your broom handle, drill holes through the centre of each piece of timber and through the centre of your base.
