I was in search for a wonderful summer DIY project, when my mother mentioned how much she would love to have something that could sit in the window sill to hold her fresh-cut herbs from their garden. This was the perfect project to try out my brand new Black and Decker 20V MAX Drill, a lightweight drill that even I can use!
I used a three inch hole-saw piece connected to the drill to cut four holes in the top board to make room for each mason jar. The top and bottom boards can be any size in length or width, it all depends on the size of the mason jars or vases you choose to use for your herb selection.
It was extremely easy for me to drill the four holes with my new Black and Decker cordless drill because of the compact size and 20 volt battery that gave it extra “umph” when trying to cut perfect circles through the wooden board.
After I got all four holes cut out of the top board, it was time to drill some holes for screws to piece the project together! It only took me five minutes to drill the holes and ten more minutes to screw the boards together to create the finished look. I was blown away by how quickly I was able to assemble all of the parts of this DIY herb project with the help of my new drill.
After a few holes were drilled and some screws were in place, it was time to put in the mason jars and fill them with fresh-cut herbs. Below is the finished product and I couldn’t be happier! Look at all of that wonderful fresh-cut cilantro, basil, mint, and oregano, and it will stay incredibly fresh while it is waiting to be used in my mothers kitchen!
If you are a frequent DIY’er or looking to get your hands into some home projects this summer, I highly recommend the brand new Black and Decker 20v MAX cordless drill!
