From the pine board, cut a 7-1/4-inch square and a piece 6-3/4 inches long. Then rip-cut the smaller board into a 6-3/4-inch square.
Download the Brush Holder Drilling Guide and then mark the hole locations on the 6-3/4-inch square. Clamp the square to a scrap board and drill four 1-3/4-inch holes. Then drill a 1/8-inch pilot hole through the center of the board.
Use pliers to unscrew the mounting bolt from the bun foot. Stand the bun foot on its small end and rest the chicken rack centered on the wide end with its prongs on the edges. Mark the prong locations on the foot. Drill 3/16-inch holes as deep as the length of the prongs. (The bit will likely break through the edge of the bun foot. If so, sand the openings smooth.)
Drill a 1/8-inch hole in the center of the 7-1/4-inch-square board. Stack the two square boards. Use a small nail to orient the two pilot holes in both squares, and then glue and clamp the boards together.
Drill a 1/8-inch pilot hole centered on the small end of the bun foot. Drive a 3-inch screw through the bottom of the larger square, the smaller square, and into the bun foot to hold them together.
