This design incorporates a CD into the bottom for a nice stable base. You dont have to put it in, but I did and I like how it came out. You can also make a shorter handle for it. Find the instructions HERE.
I was going crazy trying to decide what I can make the ladies of the family for Christmas....now I know. This will make a nice little gift. Give it a try....for yourself OR for a gift. It's easy and fast!
