  1. Decorate the wood block using paint and assorted decorations, making sure to leave one long side smooth so the block will sit flat.
  2. Place the one large ½” nut at one end of the wood or in the middle if you prefer and glue it in place.
  3. Glue one of the smaller 3/8” nuts on top of the ½” nut. This will be for the shamash
