The Bosch PKS 16 Multi is a mini hand-held circular that accepts cutting blades for tiles, wood and multi material, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Significantly smaller and more compact, the Bosch PKS 16 Multi is especially easy to operate and control – even one-handed. The tool is also equipped with a lowerable saw blade, allowing you to easily and safely carry out plunge cuts.
1. Determine the size for your decoration. A good size for the dining table is 400mm for the sides and 300mm for the bottom length.
2. Cut the strips to the required length and lightly sand to remove any splinters or rough edges.
3. Apply wood glue to the edges to join the sections in the shape of a triangle. Press the strips together firmly to ensure they stick.
4. Drill a 2mm pilot hole for the hook at the top centre of the triangle. Use a pair of pliers to screw in the hook. Cut a length of transparent line to hang your ornament.
