This is how it arrived. I had asked her to package it in pieces for easier tranport. The plates had a 1/4 inch hole drilled into them. First task: secure new plates and a 1/4 inch drill bit that could drill through glass/ceramic.
And this is what became of it:
|The process started by marking out the centers of the plates and drilling small pilot holes.|
|It continued with the glass and ceramic drill blade which is best used with water.|
|One with a hole, 2 more to go.|
|As in all projects involving the husband, beer and a 2nd plate with the hole drilled.|
|Then it was just a matter of assembly...|
|Which was had a few issues since our plates were heavier and thicker than the original ones, but it turned out perfectly!|
She has quite a variety of retro and vintage items.
