Surely I can’t be the only one who has been swooning over doughnut boards on Pinterest? It was only a matter of time before I had to give it a DIY go for Interiors Addict! What do you think of my efforts? The common Krispy Kreme never looked so good, right?
Here’s just how simple and easy it is to knock one of these bad boys up quickly…
Step 1: Pick up supplies
- 1x wooden serving board (I used the Acacia Paddle Board from Kmart– $10)
- 1x dowel rod (12.5mm x 1.8m Tasmanian Oak Dowel)
- Epoxy adhesive/wood glue (quick setting)
- Drill + 12.5mm drill bit
Step 2: Cut dowel rods
Cut your dowel rod to the desired lengths and sand down the edges.
Step 3: Drill holes
Mark out where you want the dowel rods to go (make sure you leave enough room between them for the doughnuts). Make sure your drill bit is the same width as your dowel rod and drill down 3/4 the depth of the serving board. Sand any rough bits around the holes you’ve just drilled.
Step 4: Glue dowels in
Put a small amount of glue into the holes you’ve drilled and push your dowels rod in. Remove any excess glue and then wait for it to dry.
Step 5: Eat doughnuts!
