Step 1: Screw two bolts onto a threaded rod

Screw them about an inch down, and then the nuts in the opposite direction to lock them into place.

Step 2: Secure the link chain around the rod

Take a link chain (about 11-12 links) and place each end link around the threaded rod and secure it into place.

Step 3: Place a washer under the nuts

Feed the threaded rod through the washer hole, so that the washer rests under the 2 nuts.

Step 4: Feed the rod through a terracotta pot

Grab a 6" terracotta pot and feed the rod through the drain hole so that the open end rests away from the chain.

Step 5: Secure another washer on the rod

Place another washer on the rod and follow up with a nut to hold it and the pot in place.

Step 6: Add the smaller terracotta pot

Place another washer over the rod followed by a 5" terracotta pot.

Step 7: Secure the pot with washer and nuts

Place another washer on the rod. Secure the second pot and the washer in place with 2 nuts.

Step 8: Add six sets of washers and nuts

Create 6 sets of alternating washers and nuts, and then add one more bolt to the end to keep them all in place.

Step 9: Drill a hole in a terracotta saucer

Grab a terracotta 6" plate and drill a hole through the center that is large enough for the rod to fit through.

Step 10: Secure the saucer onto the rod

The saucer can be adjusted to rest higher or lower on the rod to create different temperatures.

Step 11: Place real tea lights on the saucer

Place tea lights on the terracotta saucer so that they fill any empty spaces (about 5-6).

Step 1: Cut and sand wood according to size

Make sure you have a nice, clean final piece of wood. Cut it to desired size and sand off smooth.

Step 2: Measure and mark three holes

Start from the sides and then mark the middle point.

Step 3: Drill holes for the 4" pots

You can use a 3 3/8" hole saw attachment for your drill.

Step 5: Apply two coats of paint to the shelf

Make sure to get all the nook and crannies, especially on the inside of the holes and the outer edges.

Step 6: Drill hole and attach to the wall

This is for the screw that would mount the shelf to the wall.

Step 7: Insert terracotta pots

You can also paint the pots to match the colors of your bathroom.

Step 1: Cut burner handles to fit the pot

If the burner has plastic handles, cut them off with a saw so that the burner fits down in the pot.

Step 2: Feed the cord through the bottom hole

Feed the cord of the burner down through the hole on the bottom of a large terracotta pot.

Step 3: Drill a hole for the burner's dial

This is so that you can later move the dial and adjust the temperature.

Step 4: Insert grill tray and fill with wood

Place the grill tray directly on top of the burner and pack full of wood smoking chips.

Step 6: Secure to the second "lid" pot

Feed the thermometer stem through the pot hole. Place a rubber washer on the other side and screw it in place.

Step 7: Mark and drill hole for the handle

Mark where the handle will sit on top of the pot lid and drill.

Step 9: Fit a grilling skillet inside

Lay a grill grate or grilling skillet on top of the wood chips. Remove skillet handle if it has one.
