Start by cutting your 1x6 board. Make 4 cuts at 23.5” each using a miter saw.
Use your drill with a hole saw attachment to make 4 holes through one of the 23.5” boards. I spaced mine evenly about every 4.75”.
Once your holes are cut, use a sander to smooth the edges a bit.
Now it’s time to attach all of your boards. Use wood glue between each board, and stack the 3 boards without holes first. Hold the boards in place using the brad nailer with 1.25” brad nails.
Stack the board with holes last. Use wood glue on the bottom of this board before attaching it to your other 3 boards and nail in place using the brad nailer.
Now finish the block using your choice of paint or wood stain. I chose to stain mine, and once it was dry I used the sander to distress the finish a bit. Attach a metal pull to each each using your drill.
Fill small glass votives with candles and you have a perfect centerpiece!
