    Shortening the support post

    Shortening the support post

    The starting point for the Advent calendar is the support post, which is first shortened to 160 cm. A planting stake tapered at one end is handy because the top can be retained for the Christmas star. The 40 cm offcut can be used to make the foot of the Advent calendar. Simply fix it centrally to the bottom of the post with the two longer wood screws. The Bosch PST 10,8 LI cordless multisaw is a good choice of saw. Now saw the four smooth-edge boards into seven different lengths (dimensions: 15 cm / 30 cm / 45 cm / 60 cm / 75 cm / 80 cm / 95 cm).

    Now screw the different lengths of slat to the post at equal distances, the shortest just below the top, the longest near the bottom. The Bosch PSR 10,8 LI cordless drill driver is a useful tool for this job. Use two screws for each length of slat. These “crossbars” are the branches of the Christmas tree.

    Finally, screw the 24 cup hooks into position wherever you like across the branches, decorate them with little bags full of Advent presents and you can be sure that Christmas fans of all ages will be delighted. We wish you a lovely Advent time!
