I enjoy just about any kind of woodworking, so I decided to make the wooden stand for my Giant Bubble Machine project instead of just buying one.

Project Steps

Screw and glue together two 3-feet long sticks into an uneven X shape, making the cross at about 3/4 of the length.

Now do another pair. Make sure the two Xs come out as identical as possible to one another, for maximum stability.

Don’t worry about excess wood. You can trim it off later.

Connect the two Xs with a horizontal stick, using both screws and glue.

Leave an extra 4-5″ sticking from one side, for the kit box housing the Arduino.

That’s it! Now you’re ready to dress it up (I used pool noodles) and add the giant bubble blowing workings. See MAKE vol. 28 for complete plans.
