Step 1: Measure your kettle and draw parts
Measure your kettle
It is important to measure your kettle diameter to know the required size of the pouring aid.
Draw out parts
In our case we drew out
2x 25 centimeters by 6 centimeters ‘legs’ with a nice curve
2x 17.5 centimeters by 6cm parts for the platform
1x 17.5 by 3 centimeters part for the buffer
Especially take care to make the platform big enough to accommodate your kettle.
Step 2: Saw and sand down
Saw out the parts, stick the two legs together with dual sided tape and sand them down so they are almost exactly equal.
Step 3: Glue & screw
Glue and screw the parts together as shown in the pictures. Use glue that works with your material and pre drill for the screws.
Step 4: Add a locking mechanism
To keep the kettle in place, the author attached two pieces of Velcro to the platform. Perhaps a piece of bungee cord would work even better, or something else ingenious.
