    Measure the radius of the base of disposable plastic cups you will be using. Equip hole saw bit that is slightly larger than radius of cup into electric drill. Unclamp plywood and move the wood down so the marks are not over the table. Re-clamp the plywood in place and drill holes at marked locations. (Having someone to hold the board is advised.)
    • Drill a hole to the right of the triangle formation for the water cup. Location is not important, just far enough away that it would not be confused for cups in play.
