Beautifully display those farm fresh eggs with these DIY Wooden Egg Holders. Decorative, useful and would make a stunning DIY gift!

TOOLS AND SUPPLIES:

– Ryobi’s plunge router – Roman carbide DC1065 1-1/2″ round nose router bit – Round over router bit  – Scrap wood and clamps – Straight edge

1

Start by deciding what length you want to cut the board. For six eggs I cut the board 7 1/2 inches long. Add two inches for every pair of eggs after that.

2

Then cut the board to 4 1/2″ wide.

3

Make your first mark on the board at 1 3/4″ then two inches for every egg pair after that.

I used a speed square to extend the marks across the full face of the board. This will help to keep the router lined up on each row.

5

In order to clamp the board I had to get a little creative since most of my woodworking supplies are in storage. I started by sandwiching the board between two scrap pieces of wood using a 5 ft wood clamp that reached all the way under the table.

6

I then clamped a straight edge on top of the table so that the center of my router bit was 1 1/4″ from the edge. All routers have a flat side on the bottom plate so measure from this point to the center of the bit.
